Love's a Luxury
BY GUY PARTON & EDWARD V HOLIE
28 April 2004 — 29 May 2004
A co-production with the Stephen Joseph Theatre
Love’s a Luxury formed part of our 1987/88 Time Out award-winning season and Michael Billington wrote in The Guardian: “French farce is about lechery: British farce is about social panic. This one is a prime example of the genre filled with that peculiar native mixture of innocence and frenzy”.
So we thought it time to bring this mayhem to the new theatre. The frenzy includes marital misunderstandings, female impersonation, a knobbly-kneed scoutmaster, pretty girls and the A.B.C.I.D – the Actor’s Branch of the Criminal Investigation Department.
