In a quaint British mental hospital, a string of ill-timed

seductions, ill-conceived exchanges of clothing and ill-minded

psychiatrists unleash a bizarre and hysterical chain of events. Sane

and insane, doctor and patient, and even law and order become

hopelessly confused in one of the great farces of the modern theater.

Sean Branney of Glendale directs the production.

Show times are 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays

through Dec. 7.

The theater is at 3435 W. Magnolia Blvd., Burbank. Tickets are
