The Stevenage Lytton Players Spring 2011 Drama Production was Flying Feathers performed at the Lytton Theatre.

What's It About
When Chief Constable Henry Potterton and his sister, Sarah, arrive at the country house of their late lamented brother, Bernard, they are astonished to find several scantily-clad young ladies wandering about. They don’t know that, during Bernard’s temporary absence on a religious commune in the Orkneys, his housekeeper Nora Winthrop has turned the place into a ‘house of sin’!

As Nora is not expecting a visit from the Chief Constable, and is fearful of the questions he will ask, she hastily tries to hide the truth from him. This leads to many hilarious comings and goings involving one of her clients who is dressed as a vicar, a window-cleaner in a laundry basket and a meek solicitor on horseback – not to mention the aforesaid extremely pretty girls. When Bernard also turns up from the Orkneys (or from heaven?!) and it is seen that he and Henry are identical twins, the household is thrown into further confusion and chaos leading to an unexpected climax
