The Merry Widower


By Simon Moss

Based on the characters of Tom, Dick & Harriet created by Johnnie Mortimer and Brian Cooke


Tuesday 19th to Saturday 23rd October 2021

Richard works in advertising and lives in a flat with his wife Harriet. He never got on with his mother and after her death his father decides to pay them a rare visit and discusses his mother’s will, which is not as expected. Because of this and his father’s bad habits of womanising, tension mounts in the couple’s home as his father embraces life as the merry widower.
