Funny Money is a farce by Ray Cooney. I was in a production performed at Hunters Hill Theatre and it was great fun. I still laugh thinking about some of the lines and situations. I played Henry Perkins who is described as an insignificant middle-aged middle-class accountant. Henry’s briefcase is accidentally switched with a hit-man and it contains £735,000. With the clear intention of escaping to Spain forever, Henry’s plan is continually foiled with crooked cops, a taxi driver, Mr Brefcurse and good friends Vic and Betty. Jean (Henry’s wife) gets progressively drunk throughout the show leading to a climax. Do they end up with the money?
The video below is something I put together for the cast- basically stitching the photos together of a rehearsal to tell the show in three minutes.
