To ensure his romantic affairs with married ladies run smoothly, Celimare has a ruse. To keep things sweet, he befriends their husbands too, and in truth, he proves to be a wonderful friend. He remembers their birthdays, chooses their furnishings, employs their cooks. Everybody's happy - even the dog. But when the 47 year-old prepares to leave the past behind and marry 18 year-old Emma, it's easy enough to burn his lovers' letters, but his mistresses' husbands are simply not prepared to let him go. Set in 19th century Paris, this hilarious French farce - replete with songs and dances - is by Eugene Marin Labiche (1815-1888), a consumate master of the well-made play, who was to be a huge influence upon Georges Feydeau himself. UK PremierePerformers Raymond Coulthard, Karoline Gable, Gregory Gudgeon, Stephen Matthews, Iain Mitchell, Charlotte Wakefield, Howard Ward.
