“Go and get into mischief.”
Everyone knows Anne and Stephen are the happiest couple in the neighbourhood. Their secret? An open marriage. After all, it’s the 1930s – there’s no need to be old-fashioned. With Stephen struggling to write his latest novel, Anne encourages him to seek out fresh inspiration. But free love comes at a price…
Miles Malleson’s un-romantic comedy takes a peek behind the closed doors of suburban England between the wars. Jonathan Bank directed the acclaimed world premiere of this forgotten 1933 play in New York and now brings it home to the West End. A co-production with Mint Theater Company, New York.
