Belmont Theatre announce their newest October showing of Love in Idleness at the Pump House Theatre.
Written by Terence Rattigan, the play is set in 1944, when 17-year-old evacuee Michael Brown returns to London from Canada.
Reunited with his widowed mother Olivia, his socialist convictions are shaken when he discovers she is the mistress to industrialist Sir John Fletcher, a leading Conservative member of Churchill’s war cabinet.
Sparks fly as Olivia has to choose between the men in her life creating a witty mix of comedy drama.
‘Love in Idleness’ is one of Terence Rattigan’s three plays set in the Second World War.
Co-Director, Carole Baynes, said: “Rattigan was never totally happy with his changes to the play and consequently did little himself to promote either version.
The earlier version, ‘Less than Kind’ did not premiere in London until 2011 when it was performed to much acclaim.
Belmont Theatre is an established, multi-award-winning amateur theatre group, resident at The Pump House Theatre, Watford, where it performs a wide variety of productions three times a year.
Love in Idleness will be shown at the Pump House from October 23 to October 26, with both matinee and evening performances.
