Based on the screenplay The Apartment
by Billy Wilder and I.A.L. Diamond. The story follows the tormented love affair of Chuck, a clerk, who achieves promotion by renting his room to his bosses for their extra-marital affairs. In the course of his career rise, Chuck learns that one of these 'temporary tenants' is having an affair with Fran, the girl he loves. Amongst the score's many delightful songs was 'I'll Never Fall in Love Again', which became a hit for Dionne Warwick in the US, and was a UK number one for Bobby Gentry.Performers Richard Frame (Chuck Baxter), Martin Turner (J D Sheldrake), Emma Williams (Fran Kubelik), Jack Chissick (Dr Dreyfus), Helen Dixon (Miss Della Hoya), Amy Field (Dentist's Nurse), Helen French (Vivian), Glyn Grain (Mr Dobitch), Susie Harriet (Ginger), Sarah Helsby Hughes (Company/Vocalist), Julia Hinchcliffe (Peggy Olson), Graham Howes (Mr Eichelberger), Barnaby Ingram (Company Doctor), Sarah Ingram (Marge MacDougall), Stuart Liddle (Mr Kirkeby), Alice Mogg (Miss Polansky), Jess Plumridge (Company/Vocalist), Michael Remick (Jesse Vanderhof), Ellie Sprack (Sylvia Gilhooley), Ewan Wardrop (Karl Kubelick), Nancy Wei George (Miss Wong).
