Oxford. Summer 1933.
Brideshead Revisited meets The History Boys.

Tony and David have been best friends throughout their time at university, but does their loyalty go deeper? When Tony falls in love with the beautiful movie star Margot Gresham, in Oxford to appear in a play with the undergraduates, their relationship is put to the test.

Both touching and uproariously funny, First Episode is one of the earliest plays to deal explicitly with homosexuality, and for lovers of Rattigan's work it is fascinating to see the first fruits of his creativity.

First Episode was Rattigan's first play, written while he was still a student. It transferred to the West End and Broadway in 1934. Lost in the archives for decades, this is its first ever revival.

Primavera's past productions at Jermyn Street Theatre include The Notorious Mrs Ebbsmith, The Living Room, Bloody Poetry, Anyone Can Whistle and Saturday Night.

Caroline Langrishe leads an outstanding young cast as Margot Gresham. Langrishe's prolific career includes Charlotte Cavendish in Lovejoy and Georgina Channing in Judge John Deed for the BBC, as well as numerous roles on stage.

Adam Buchanan, Gavin Fowler, Harry Gostelow, Alex Hope, Molly Hanson, Philip Labey, Caroline Langrishe
