Wild Goose chase

Director's Note

Wild Goose Chase' is set in the baronial hall of Elrood Castle. It is morning on a day in summer. Into the eccentric family of Lord Elrrod arrives the even more bizarre character of Chester Dreadnought. Chester is under the impression (correctly) that he is being hunted by two underworld characters. He has to avoid their attention as far as he can. How successfully or otherwise you can judge for yourselves. I hope you enjoy the chase.
