No.13 (Mad Night or Pigden’s Wedding) by Ray Coony its a comedy of situations beloved by audience but yet fascinating and funny – you never know what surprises the destiny has for the heroes.
Quite innocent affair of the prime minister assistant with his boss's secretary may turn into a scandal or even a murder any minute. It is crucial to prevent the cat come out of the bag, especially that none of the heroes wants that. That is why the central figure shall become a person who thinks out of the box and makes fast and elegant decisions. Surprisingly even for himself, George Pigden, the secretary of the Prime Minister’s Assistant becomes such decisive man. He changed so many roles in that really long night. He was the young husband of a strange wife and the seducer of an old maid, he was promised to be killed by his disgraced husband, and unsatisfied women were hunting for him. Above all that, he was forced to handle a cold dead body of a former detective pushed by a window frame, a body that... well, let an intrigue be an intrigue.
And there is more... The situation changes breathtakingly fast. Enchanting developments, surprising twists, funny actions and sayings, all that creates funny atmosphere and a good mood as the result. It is really important to laugh at ourselves, our sins, and remember that white lie is still lie, and an affair is always affair and No. 13 has nothing to do with it.
