Old Log staged Ray Cooney's cynical, grown-up comedy with ace performances and a black heart beating beneath its madcap capering. Tom Stolz was an accountant arriving home from his soul-crushing job with one priority on his mind: getting a plane ticket to anywhere, and fast, after picking up the wrong briefcase on the train and finding it stuffed with cash. From here it was all spit-takes and ratcheting tension, with Judith Heneghan as the befuddled wife who imbibes a lake of booze to manage it all. James Cada arrived as an arch, seen-it-all cop, and amid various threats from the money's rightful owner, everyone eventually hatched a scheme that was essentially a raised middle finger in the face of convention, responsibility, and the passionless grind of the workaday world. As Steve Miller sagely put it, take the money and run.
