The traditional melodrama themes are reworked in a fast-paced entertainment romp through the trials and tribulations of Mumberley Manor, England in 1900. Brother Jack has been in the wilds of Canada for six years trying to find the secret of the Mumberley fortune. Father's gambling debts are in the hands of villainous Marmaduke Mayhem, who with the aid of his sidekick Crispin Cringe is determined to marry the beautiful Daphne.

"Take your friends and your family and go see this show. You won’t be disappointed, and you will leave feeling better from having laughed so much."


What can poor Daphne do but marry Mayhem to save her family, leaving Rodney Stoutheart and his stiff upper lip at the vestry door? Unless perhaps, Rodney can save the day by disguising himself as the long-lost Jack and deceiving the villain?

The Mumberley Inheritance was first produced by Walterdale Theatre Associates at the Citadel Theatre in Edmonton in 1971.
