Comment on this story on the

London Assurance by Dion Boucicault, is a complete delight of comic nonsense presented by The Questors Theatre from 1st November for one week.

Staged in the newly-named Judi Dench Playhouse, this Questors production is a perfectly delicious Regency romp with classic setting and costumes, but using the refreshed modern language of the Richard Bean script that was such a smash hit in the recent revival at The National Theatre.   It’s a familiar tale of city sophistication and country simplicity that includes a foolish older man chasing a young heiress, who is simultaneously pursued by his own son in disguise. Meanwhile, an array of characters called  Lady Gay Spanker, Meddle, Cool, Dazzle and Pert live up to their names and create havoc as the action moves from London to deepest Gloucestershire. The madcap events that ensue make for a hilarious evening of fun and frivolity to rival any forthcoming seasonal event.   Get your tickets now and prepare to giggle and guffaw at the antics played out by a talented cast, supported by a gifted artistic team and make sure you start the winter months with a broad smile on your face.
