Tons Of Money

Tons of Money is a farcical play by British writers Will Evans and Arthur Valentine. It was co-produced by Tom Walls and Leslie Henson. In the story of the play, a hard-up inventor pretends to be his cousin, in order to escape the clutches of his creditors.

It was first performed in April 1922 at the Shaftesbury Theatre and ran for nearly two years. It starred Henson as Aubrey Allington and Yvonne Arnaud as Louise Allington. Its great success led Walls and Henson to produce the series of long-running Aldwych farces.
