I haven't laughed so hard for a long time!! Very funny. I partucularly like the scene where Lady M is trying to teach her dog to "go" outside rather than on the rug beside the fire.

But I get ahead of myself. The plot:

Mr M (not his real name, and he's a thane anyway) has a foursome with three sisters who convince him he's king. They were just trying to be nice as the experience wasn't all that fulfilling, really. It seems that M had performance issues.

Anyway the wife hears about the King part and to keep the marriage together M has to convince her that the sisters were pronouncing a prophecy. The remainder of the play is the usual farcical fare, with people moaning in their sleep and horses doing tricks, roles being reversed and funny death lines: "mummy he hath killed me."

I found the Porter's jokes about drink and performance to be in rather bad taste considering M's problem, but otherwise a laugh a minute stuff.

If you're a boss, read it to your workers for the Christmas party.
