“Tom Littler has made a great success of his time at the tiny Jermyn Street theatre. From October, he steps up in scale when he takes over as artistic director of the Orange Tree in Richmond. His farewell comes in the form of a seldom revived 1939 comedy by Dorothy L Sayers, creator of the Lord Peter Wimsey crime series. It follows Lydia, who had intended to abandon the stage for marriage but who makes a return when it all goes wrong. There is sometimes good reason why a play has been neglected for decades, but sometimes a good case can be made for them. Littler is certainly going to go all out in his swansong, which showcases a play about women, creativity, and careers.”

Tickets from £26

Overview

Lydia thought abandoning the West End to elope to Venice with a romantic novelist would be exciting. But Godfrey writes all day, his divorce is taking forever, and the Grand Canal smells ghastly. Back in London, a new female playwright is taking theatreland by storm, and Lydia resolves to bag herself the role of a lifetime. There’s just one snag: the mysterious playwright is Godfrey’s wife.

Hilariously tangled amidst the affairs of the Roaring Thirties in Venice and London, this dazzling comedy is as entertaining as Dorothy L. Sayers‘ best-selling detective novels featuring Lord Peter Wimsey and Harriet Vane. Our Artistic Director, Tom Littler, directs Love All’s first major revival.
