Congratulations to our amazing cast!

BURKE KNAPP:  Eric Swan – an ingenious con artist who has been deceiving the Social Security system for years!

SARAH KNAPP:  Linda Swan – Eric’s wife.  Smart, yet concerned her husband is troubled.

GATES BENNETT:  Norman McDonald – the upstairs tenant.  An awkward, blundering introvert with a bad cold.

DAN KUNKEL:  Mr. Jenkins – a middle-aged council employee who is probably less

 intelligent than he thinks he is.

CORY SCOFFIELD/TERRY KEATING:  Uncle George – Eric’s uncle.  A chirpy older man.

JENNIFER MARTIN: Sally Chessington – a young welfare worker.

BRYCE MILLER:  Doctor Chapman – a ‘first-day-on-the-job’ marriage guidance councilor.

JR SELLERS:  Mr. Forbright – an undertaker who wears a dark suit.

HADLI SHOKES:  Ms. Cowper – a severe looking Department of Social Security inspector.

ABIGAIL JAGLOWSKI:  Miss Dixon – Norman’s fiancé.  A sweet ‘girl-next-door’ fiancé.

 This fast paced British farce concerns a con artist who has duped the welfare authorities for years by claiming every type of benefit for the innumerable people he claims live at his address. He's sent scrambling when welfare investigators show up and he is forced to prove all of his boarders are in fact real. A hilarious comedy full of mistaken identities, slamming doors, and a con that spirals out of control!
