Set in Paris in the Spring, the play concerns Denise, a charming lady novelist living alone with her three delightful children.
The only sign of a father is the portrait of “Dear Charles” displayed in a place of honour, but then the arrival of an Englishman, a Frenchman and a Polishman from Denise’s past, starts providing rich comic opportunities...
BHTC NOTES: After a fire ruined the stage and dressing room areas of the Park Centre in December 1967, Oakmeads School kindly offered their stage facilities so larger productions could still be produced by the club, whilst all necessary repairs were made.
