Additional Info

The magistrature must be above and beyond all moral reproach. This is a challenge that Mademoiselle Gobette, creator of the smash hit operetta 'Ooh La La, La Marquise!' and star of the Singing Swans, cannot resist. Nor can any man resist her, from a provincial judge to the Minister of Justice himself. Beginning with her arrival in the backwoods town of Gray, two of the best farceurs of nineteenth century Paris spin a dizzy series of seductions, cover ups, mistaken identities and rapid promotions which catch the lawyers well and truly in the act! First performed in Manchester, this brilliant and hilarious adaptation of the classic French farce went on to enjoy a successful run at London's Phoenix Theatre.
