Thea Sharrock, who won four Olivier Awards for her previous National Theatre musical, After the Dance, is the director for this production.

He sets his sights on gaining her love while the chaos and hilarity around him grows. In this delightful farce, director Thea Sharrock (Caroline Quentin and Richard Fleeshman) leads a brilliant cast.
