On Approval

On ApprovalT01215386265
Spoiled, rich widow Maria Wislake decides to test the suitability of a potential husband, the likeable Richard Halton, by taking him away for a month to her Scottish Estate 'On Approval'. They are pursued by Richard's impoverished and conceited friend George, the Duke of Bristol, who has to leave town to avoid his creditors, and George's youthful and wealthy admirer Helen Hayle. But when bad weather sets in, the staff abandon them and the brandy and cigars run out, the four of them are trapped in the house with only each other for company. Described by critics on its debut in 1927 as ' butterfly of a play', Frederick Lonsdale's delicious comedy of manners, filled with wonderfully bitchy characters and cracking one-liners is a rarely performed classic from one of the twentieth century's forgotten playwrights.
Author Frederick Lonsdale
