Summary
A terrorist attack and a body needing plastic surgery are the ingredien's of another Fo farce. Here he pokes incisive fun at bosses, the police and the discipline of work and as always his medicine is bitter-sweet with a sardonic aftertaste. This comedy enjoyed a successful run at London's Phoenix Theatre in 1984 starring Griff Rhys-Jon's.
