Cleese is a master of surreal British slapstick

Classic Cleese comedy - Fawlty Towers goes French!

John Cleese makes his stage writing debut with a hilarious new adaptation of this classic comedy.

When Leontine, a respectable society lady, discovers that she’s been hoodwinked by her husband, Duchotel, who’s always pretending to go hunting but really chasing after other ‘prey’, she vows to take revenge on the philanderer! But while Duchotel’s away, his lifelong friend comes calling – and he’s on the hunt too. Will Leontine get caught in his sights, or instead set a trap of her own?


Will make your face hurt from laughing!
Review from the American Premier Production


Secrets unravel as the devilish Duchotel finds himself snared in a door-slamming, trouser-dropping, balcony-climbing night of chaos set amidst the stylish apartments of Paris.

Very Funny”
 Loved it!”
...a riot of comedy… brilliant farce with laugh a minute one-liners which had us in stitches. A must see.”
