Edmonds' today debut with the farcical "No Sex Please, We're British" at the Wade James Theater.
Written by Anthony Marriott and Alistair Foot, it tells the story of a young bride who lives above a bank with her husband, the bank's assistant manager. Innocently, she sends a mail order off for some Scandinavian glassware.
What arrives instead is Scandinavian pornography.
The plot centers around the conundrum of how best to dispose of the veritable floods of pornography, photographs, books, films—and eventually, girls—that threaten to engulf and destroy this happy couple's marriage.
The matter is considerably complicated by the man's mother, his boss, a visiting bank inspector, a police superintendent and a muddled friend who does everything wrong in his reluctant efforts to set everything right. All of which works up to an ending with closed or slamming doors.
Directed by Alyson Soma, "No Sex Please, We're British" stars Terrence Boyd, Meagan Castillo, Nicole Chamberlin, Caitlin Gilman, Kristine Haroldson, Dennis McCabe, Boyd Morrison, David Nance, Steve Ruggles and Mary Kay Voss.
