The Hillside Players are delighted to present ‘Funny Money’ by Ray Cooney this spring.

This is a hilarious comedy which begins when Henry Perkins, a mild mannered C.P.A, accidentally picks up the wrong briefcase, one full of money, he automatically 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.

Naturally all does not run smoothly, with certain activities drawing attention to Henry, resulting in an unexpected police call and a detective showing up at the door. Will the owner of the suitcase also track Henry down?

Hilarity ensues as Henry tries to get him and his reluctant wife to the airport, but will they make it?.
