Happy Acres

Synopsis:
It may be advertised as "a Quality establishment" but Happy acres health farm is far from that. the domineering Mrs Comley and her sidekick Sam, the old odd job man, are in charge of the worn out and tired buildings. Sam is running a moonshine whisky still from the garden shed. they both spend their time trying to relieve the clientele of pounds, not from their waists but from their wallets. Mrs Comley, in cahoots with Madame "O", the struck-off hypnotist, allow the inmates to indulge in a spot of "harmless hypnotics". That is until all the booking forms get muddled up and the punters become not quite what they expected!a a fast paced, very funny comedy that all the family can enjoy.
