Adaptation by Tom Stoppard, from an original play by Ferenc Molnar. This hilarious play, freely adapted from Molnar's classic farce Játék a Kastélyban was seen at the National Theatre in 1984 starring Michael Kitchen, John Standing and Sheila Gish. Two playwrights and collaborators, the composer and most of the cast of a musical comedy destined for Broadway are trying to finish and rehearse the play while crossing from Southampton via Cherbourg, to New York. With music by André Previn, Tom Stoppard wittily parodies thirties' musicals.
