Abridged from the Wikipedia entry:
Gosforth's Féte is a one-act play originally part of a production called Confusions which consisted of five one-act plays written in 1974 by Alan Ayckbourn.
Publican Gosforth's running the village gala, but there's bad personal news from stalwart Milly Carter over the public-address system. Pink-legged Cubmaster Stewart Stokes discovers alcohol, there's a fine vicar, and Councillor Mrs Piece gets severely dishevelled. And that's before the rain. Gosforth's Fete starts as drama, develops into well-choreographed chaos as everything goes wrong and climaxes as full-blown farce. <ref>Gosforth's Féte on Wikipedia</ref>
