The late Peter Shaffer (Amadeus, Equus) originally wrote the 1987 comedy for Maggie Smith, whose award-winning performance as eccentric tour guide Lettice Douffet made Lettice and Lovage a West End and Broadway hit. Smith's was one of those powerful, memorable performances which have made it a near-impossible act to follow.
But with prolific director Sir Trevor Nunn (Royal National Theatre, Royal Shakespeare Company) at the helm and comedy royalty Felicity Kendal and Maureen Lipman on stage, we expect the Menier revival of Lettice and Lovage to at least rival the original. Book promptly – this small theatre has a habit of selling out fast.
