About the Play

When the crew of the Grace Brothers department store prepare for a sale of German goods and then depart for a staff holiday in Spain, they survive their stay in the tropics at a one star establishment and their encounters with everything from a Spanish crumpet to randy revolutionaries with everything intact but their modesty.

The cast includes: Julie Poulin, Andy Tolman, Mike Clements,Sunny Kirkham, Larry Vinal, Gregor Smith, Lisa St. Hillaire, Ken Graham, Wendi Richards, Brian Ryerson, Peter Diplock and Jonathan Williams.
