Pitlochry Summer Season - Home And Beauty By W. Somerset Maugham
Pitlochry Festival Theatre, PH16 5DR
1919: with the turmoil of the Great War beginning to recede, life in Britain is returning to – well, not quite normal. For after four years of war, the staid Edwardian era is truly over and the Jazz Age is about to begin . . .
Society beauty Victoria definitely looks to the future. After her first husband, Bill, was killed at Ypres, she went completely to pieces, but managed to pull herself together - after a year’s dutiful mourning - by marrying her husband’s best friend, Frederick.
But then, out of the blue, Bill turns up on the doorstep, a touch of amnesia and a spell in a German POW camp having delayed his return. Surprisingly unaffected by his ordeal, Bill is cheered to see his wife, but a mite put out to discover that she’s acquired another husband. And that it’s his old chum Frederick . . .
Interestingly, Victoria seems unconcerned by the news that she’s
a bigamist. Perhaps that’s because she’s decided that soldiers no longer make fashionable husbands - and her solicitor has arranged more divorces
than any other lawyer in England. Does she already have eyes on husband number three?
Something of a missing link between Wilde and Wodehouse, Home And Beauty is a high energy, sharp-as-a-tack comedy of morals, manners and marriage by one of the greatest playwrights and novelists of the inter-war years. Don’t miss this rare revival of a classic period comedy! All tickets (From £15.00) from Tel: 01796 484626 or www.PitlochryFestivalTheatre.com
