  • Terence Rattigan's brilliant comedy, Love In Idleness, directed by Trevor Nunn, transfers to the West End following an acclaimed run at the Menier Chocolate Factory.

    Starring Olivier Award winner Eve Best (A Moon for the Misbegotten, Hedda Gabler, Nurse Jackie), Anthony Head (Six Degrees of Separation, MerlinBuffy The Vampire Slayer), and Edward Bluemel (The Halcyon).

    Returning from Canada after a four-year absence during the war, eighteen-year-old Michael is full of youthful ideology and leftist leanings. But he is shocked to find his widowed mother Olivia is now the mistress of cabinet minister Sir John Fletcher, enjoying a comfortable society life. When Michael and John clash, sparks fly and relationships are tested as everyone learns some difficult lessons in love.

    This brand new production marks Trevor Nunn's (A Little Night Music, Aspects of Love) exciting return to Rattigan's work, following the huge success of Flare Path. Terence Rattigan’s (1911–1977) other plays include The Deep Blue Sea, The Browning Version, Separate Tables, French Without Tears and The Winslow Boy.
