LAILA ALJ

Is currently in rehearsals for ‘A Night In Provence’ at The Mill in Sonning, opening 27 September.

A NIGHT IN PROVENCE

The French Riviera! Where optimistic holidaymakers rent luxury villas for exhorbitant sums in order to get their annual fix of sun, sea and haute cuisine. However, imagine the crisis if one such sumptuous place was double booked. Worse – imagine it triple booked! By a French couple – Maurice & Yvette; an English couple – Fred & Judy; and an Irish couple – Shaun & Moira. Marriages have floundered on less.

Add the ingredients of copious amounts of sparkling champagne, heightened sexual attractions, to say nothing of the deep-seated cultural difference, and all of this makes the current Brexit negotiations seem a snip!
