Following a sold out run at the Menier Chocolate Factory, Terence Rattigan's brilliant comedy Love in Idleness transfers to the Apollo Theatre for 50 performances only. This brand new production marks Trevor Nunn's exciting return to Rattigan's work, following the huge success of Flare Path. 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. Love in Idleness stars the Olivier Award winning Eve Best (A Moon for the Misbegotten, Hedda Gabler and Nurse Jackie), Anthony Head (Six Degrees of Separation, Merlin and Buffy The Vampire Slayer) and Edward Bluemel (The Halcyon).
A £1.25 restoration levy (collected on behalf of the theatre) appears as part of the ticket cost.
