The Play’s The Thing by Ferenc Molnár, adapted by PG Wodehouse (Soulpepper Theatre). A playwright schemes to save a relationship and his operetta in this romantic comedy.

Returning to one of their favourite plays, Soulpepper again impress with this 1926 comedy about a well-to-do playwright who turns to his writerly skills to try and set right a series of unpleasant events at an opulent countryside hotel. It’s a hilarious script about the limits and power of theatre, and the strong cast nails this witty high comedy.
