Three Bags Full

by Jerome Chodorov

Directed by Tony Cotterill

22nd – 24th November 2018 – The National Archives

Three Bags Full will be the first Q2 Players production performed at the Events Space at The National Archives!

A wealthy sporting goods mogul tries to keep his family’s adventures in life and love straight along with three similar-looking bags, one holding diamonds, one cash and one ladies’ underwear. Absurdities, misunderstandings and coincidences pile up in the usual unlikely ways in this hilarious farce.
