Never Kiss a Naughty Nanny

Mr. Broadbent, a developer and builder, has created “THE HOUSE OF THE FUTURE”. The house, however, has remained unsold for four years, probably because, as we see in the course of the play, most of the innovations of the future fail to work properly. He has, at last found prospective buyers, Fred and Gladys McNicoll, and invites them to stay in the house. He is determined to offload this huge “White Elephant” – by any means necessary.

“Its many twists and turns make Never Kiss a Naughty Nanny a classic farce, which is sure to bring a smile.” The Citizen, Clearwater.

 Cast of Characters

BEN ADAMS – age 21-30; a real estate salesman employed by Mr. Broadbent; young, naive, likable, always confused and in trouble, but honest and sincere

MR. BROADBENT – age 50-70; very much a self-made man; blunt, rough around the edges

CASEY CODY – age 20-30; Mr. Broadbent’s secretary; competent, resourceful, and quick thinking, with a wonderful sense of humour

SUE JOHNSON – age 20-25; a recent graduate of the local culinary institute; a walking, breathing, living disaster area; loveable, laughable, and endearing

MR. COTT – age 40+; the central character in the play, and he, of course is Nanny; down to earth, gruff, but very, very funny

GLADYS MCNICOLL (age 40+) – the prospective buyer of the house of the future; totally dominates her husband, and indeed all those around her; loud, aggressive, and overbearing

FRED MCNICOLL – age 40+; the hen-pecked husband of Gladys until he turns the table on Gladys at the very end of the play; Meek, mild, and good-natured

WALTER BROOKS – age 40+; a surprise visitor; develops an almost insane infatuation for Nanny, and will not be discouraged; single minded and not very likeable
