H. W. Crocker takes a cast of absurd characters, an old British General, sexy California beach bunnies, and Jamaican drug dealers and throws them together in this side-splitting comic affair. Performer Graeme Malcolm's dry English accent and understated demeanor only serve to increase the already hysterical situations that occur as Crocker's incongruous characters collide on the mean streets and beaches of Southern California. Fraught with hilarious cultural misunderstandings and even danger, The Old Limey brings non-stop laughs.
What happens when a reactionary, retired British brigadier general comes to Los Angeles looking for his missing goddaughter? Comic chaos, that's what, with California beach babes, Jamaican drug gangs, and other colorful characters feuding, fighting, but not quite fornicating, in a mad search and rescue operation.

this is a rather fast moving entertaining Old British General in America story. it's a bit like a Donald Westlake comic caper story with a little of the daydreaming Walter Mitty/Don Quixote unreliable narrator tossed in. at times its very funny as he attempts to navigate LA while searching for his god-daughter. & the narrator is very good and I hope he does more British narratives.
