If I were to begin trying to explain the plot of It Runs in the Family, I’d soon become very stuck. Not that the play itself is a difficult concept but the endless trail of lies by the characters make it rather hard to follow. Loosely, the story is one ridiculously hilarious lie after another as Dr Mortimore tries to hide his illegitimate child from his wife and himself from the child. As the web of lies gets more tangled, he has to call on the help of his colleague, Dr Bonney, to assist with covering his tracks. With hilarious consequences, half of the hospital staff end up getting involved in the big lie in same way, whether they know it or not. It’s incredibly confusing, but delightfully so to watch.
