On the eve of his wedding, the young Earl of Harpenden – Bobby to his friends – has offered his room to Joe, an American soldier he drunkenly met the night before. When Bobby’s fiancée Lady Elizabeth turns up, Joe makes a move, thinking she must be Bobby’s ex, the wonderful Mabel Crum. But a Free French lieutenant also has eyes for her... And to complicate matters, Bobby’s future father in law turns up too.

London in the Blitz, and identities get confused: time to make hay...

The first major London revival of this delectably charming comedy in decades. Rattigan’s greatest hit played for over 1,000 performances in the West End when it opened in 1943.

Artistic Director Paul Miller directs following his phenomenally successful production of Rattigan's French Without Tears, which played two sld out runs at the OT, before going on a national tour.
