on Mark Giesser's production of Gigi

Damian Granville is a banker and devoted family man with an unconventional way of taking his summer holidays: he travels alone and looks for a woman to seduce. This particular year he spots a beautiful young lady walking a white Pomeranian dog. How can he resist? He’s a skilful player and sure of success. Except Anne Dennis isn’t quite what he bargains for.

★★★★★ “Wonderfully funny scenes of misunderstanding in a swift-moving and witty script leaving the audience exhausted with laughter”
