"To have you suddenly reappearing like this is enough to unman any woman."

a whole heap of fun ... it will make you laugh - Jodi McAlister, Theatre From The Back Seat

comedy with a bite and a filigree of sentiment - Paul Nolan, Sydney Arts Guide

George Brent and his wife Jennifer, a romantic novelist, separated when their two children were tiny. He made a new life among the 'horsey' set of rural England, she took the children to the Continent and brought them up in a bohemian atmosphere. Now, 17 or so years on, the children decide to return to England and meet their father.... and their stepmother.... and, needless to say, they have a plan....!!!

This was Coward's second performed play, premiering at the Savoy Theatre in 1923, and it marked his arrival at the age of 22 as the voice of a new generation. The play always remained one of his personal favourites and we are delighted to bring this rarely seen delight to our stage!

On Saturday 11th May 2013 the Genesian Theatre will donate 50% of all Box Office takings to the St Vincent's Centre for Applied Medical Research. We encourage you to come along to help us support this worthwhile cause.
