Fool's Paradise

Written by Peter Coke
Directed by Kathy Lacasse
Produced by Crystal & Doug Winger

Although surrounded by valuable antiques, Jane and Catherine live in debt, for the late husband of both ladies, Basil Hayling, left house and property to them, stipulating that they were both to live there but could not sell any of it.

Basil's sister has just left a spray of emeralds in her will. If they prove valuable, all their debts can be paid. Unfortunately, Jane giddily accepts deposits on the emeralds from too many people and can only hold them at bay by inventing a third owner for them - a Senhora Conchita Elvas - whom she then impersonates.

As debts and troubles increase, she even accepts a deposit on Catherine's son, rashly promising his hand in marriage to glamorous and enamoured Fiona Renshaw. They all spend some merry moments solving this almost inextricable tangle.
