EDDIE Manchip owns a somewhat ailing health club in a decaying country mansion.

When Eddie signs away the deeds of the house to a sinister crook, in payment of his gambling debts, chaos ensues.

Soon, his staff desert, leaving only a half-witted, hysterical maid to keep company with his erring and pompous brother and suspicious wife, a tennis player with a habit of removing her clothes, thinking it is a nudist colony, her kilted Scottish husband and a hearty Oxfam volunteer, who simply "collects" any clothing left unguarded.

Who Goes Bare? is a Carry On-style farce written by Richard Harris - who has contributed episodes of hit TV shows The Avengers, The Saint and The Sweeney - and Leslie Darbon, who wrote for Shoestring and Bergerac among others.
