In the course of one night we meet a hard-drinking tycoon who's thinking about buying a Victorian country house. But the house has quite a history. It's rumored to be a former bordello and haunted by one of its past inhabitants-- a deceased prostitute! You've got the set-up, now just add the wacky cast of characters: a lawyer, a builder, the tycoon, his wife, the wife's brother and his fiancé, whew! Put all of these people in a creaky haunted house and it's a recipe for hilarity. During the hectic night, with continual running up and downstairs and in and out of rooms, the characters jump in and out of bed, get locked in closets and basically create hysterical chaos. The tycoon's wife may be thinking about running away from it all, but we know you won't want to run from this hilarious comedy!
