French Without Tears

Starring: Ziggy Heath (Alan), Alistair Toovey (Kenneth), Alex Large (Brian), Beatriz Romilly (Jaqueline), Tim Delap (Commander Rogers), Joe Eyre (Kit), David Whitworth (Monsier Maingot), Ariane Gray (Marianne) and Florence Roberts (Diana)

Following its critically acclaimed sell out run at the Orange Tree Theatre, Terence Rattigan's sparkling 1936 comedy comes to the Everyman Theatre.

After a group of young men arrive at Monsieur Maingot's French school for the summer to cram for the Diplomatic exam, their concentration is disrupted by beautiful visitor Diana Lake. Quelle surprise, they must learn another new language: girls.

At first, it seems pretty simple. Kit loves Diana and she loves him. And Bill. Oh and darling Alan, of course. Then there's Jack; she's in love too. Meanwhile, Babe conceals his feelings...

Not so simple after all.

"It catches the evanescent, mood-shifting nature of youth itself, with all its lovable-hateful neuroses and unavoidable foibles." - Dominic Cavendish, Telegraph
