A comedy of errors as insane asylum patients exchange clothes with their officers and escape for a few days madness and fun.

 

UP UP AND AWAY

Open on large mansion. A sign reads Happy Valley Insane Asylum.

Four shackled inmates are prodded onto a bus by wardens…the windows are barred.

The inmates are being taken to another asylum in a nearby town.

The last inmate steals the keys from a wardens back pocket.

With the bus underway and the shackles unlocked the four wardens are overpowered.

Weapons and cell phones are taken.

The inmates exchange their hospitol garb for the uniforms of the now shackled wardens.

At the distant asylum the wardens are offloaded into the care of the Head Warden who signs for them despite their protest as to who they are.

With two situations to plunder a comedy of errors ensues.…the joyful bus trip of the inmates and the fury of the incarcerated wardens.

Show girls in mud wrestling…punch up in bar…visit mum…find wife with lover…check out kid at football…gambling…drag race…chased by police…highjack a plane…

Wardens strip searched…hosed down…interaction with other inmates…one knows they are wardens…escape bids…tunnelling…over the wall…highjack a bus…chase after the inmates coach…drag race with them

Until finally…
