Many years ago, (far more than I care to remember) when I was growing up in England, there was a form of entertainment that was known, in theatrical terms, as farce. The leading performer of those hilarious comedy shows at the time was Brian Rix, and for more than twenty-six years he and his wife Elspet Gray entertained audiences at Whitehall Theater and other theaters in London and around the country. The plot usually involved a lot of running in and out of doors, mostly in the bedroom. I don’t ever remember hearing any swearing in these shows, there was never anything smutty and the biggest laugh invariably came when the gentleman dropped his trousers (in the nicest possible way, of course) usually at a most inopportune moment. How I miss those light-hearted performances. So I thought I’d dedicate these bedroom doors to the memory of Brian Rix and all the laughs he gave us over the years.
