The title of the next production at Contra Costa Civic Theatre in El Cerrito says it all.

The comic farce "No Sex Please, We're British," which has had a long run in London, opens Friday at CCCT, 951 Pomona Ave.

"Newlywed Frances Hunter sends off a mail order for Scandinavian glassware. What comes back is not glassware, but Scandinavian smut," is how the plot summary opens.

From there Frances and her strait-laced husband Paul, who manages the bank below their apartment, try to figure out "what to do with the flood of pornography, books, films, and more that threaten to overwhelm the happy couple."

In on the dilemma is the bank's frantic chief cashier and "the situation is further complicated by involvement from Peter's mother, a bank inspector, the police superintendent, and others."

Dennis Markam directs the "comedy of manners," which will be staged at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays through Dec. 1, with 2 p.m. Sunday matinees on Nov. 18 and 25, and Dec. 2.
