"…fast, funny dialogue delivered at breakneck speed … sharp, witty, laugh out loud funny" (Theatreview)
"It's more than glorious, it's brilliant" (Otago Daily Times)
When Gloria Lord, a rich, bored socialite meets would-be writer Jimmy, she decides there and then that she will marry him - no matter what he says. A sophisticated (and slapstick), screwball comedy from New Zealand writer Richard Huber.
Starring Anya Tate-Manning (McKenzie Country) and Sam Bunkall (Pirate vs Ninjas)
