A classic farce by Ray Cooney
One day Henry A. Perkins, a mild-mannered C.P.A, accidentally picks up the wrong briefcase – one full of money. Henry assumes it is illicit cash and he decides to keep it. Knowing that the former owner must have his briefcase, he rushes home to book one way fares to Barcelona.
He tells his confused wife to leave everything behind; if she doesn’t like Barcelona, they can go to Bali. In fact, they can buy Bali! The doorbell rings as they wait for their taxi. A police detective at the door suspects Henry was soliciting in the men’s room of the local pub! Actually, he was sitting in the loo counting the cash.
Now another detective arrives thinking Henry is dead; a man with bullet holes in his head and Henry’s briefcase were found in the Thames!
Henry’s inept attempts to extricate himself from this impossible situation lead to increasingly hysterical situations.
