Ray Cooney's comedy takes place in a hospital and contains all the zany characters running in and out of doors that audiences love in a farce. Confused identities, paternity suits, and an array of lunatics keep Dr. Mortimore on his toes as he deals with his ex-wife and his punkish son while delivering an important lecture at an international conference. Described as a "must for the bruised in spirit and the young at heart," It Runs in the Family is sure to be loads of goofy fun.
