First Things First
A comedy by Derek Benfield
George has been Pete's best man at both of his weddings. Pete, now happily married to Sarah, is shocked when he learns that his first wife, Jessica, was not killed in a climbing accident, as they had thought, but is alive and well and keen to resume her life with Pete. This leads to a series of hilarious situations as George helps Pete try to find a way out of his untoward predicament without upsetting either of Pete’s wives or his second wife’s domineering mother.
Towards the end of the play, when the audience believes that all the wrinkles have been ironed out, an unexpected occurrence throws everything into disarray again.
