Derek Benfield

Published by Samuel French Ltd

4 Male 2 Female

When Ferris agrees to look after his sister's seedy hotel during her temporary absence in Benidorm he does not anticipate the arrival of a notorious journalist who writes a critical column about hotels in a Sunday newspaper

Or that this arrival will coincide with the visit to the hotel of an assortment of guests who have guilty secrets they do not wish to have divulged

As a result, Ferris is caught up in the dizzy round of lies and subterfuge as he tries to protect the hotel's reputation in the eyes of the visiting journalist, a task made more difficult by the fact that he does not know which of his guests is the journalist!


"The pace is relentless in this merry mixture of comic chaos" ~ Oxford Times

"Much of Benfield's strength as a playwright lies in creating beautifully contrasting characters" ~ The Stage
