Our Next Production

Version 8.01

Humble Boy 2015

Comedy and dentistry are an unusual combination in life and even rarer in the theatre but in this adaptation from a French farce we meet a dentist who in his determination to keep his bachelor status invents a wife to deter girlfriends intent on marrying him. Fine - until that little white lie takes on a life of its own!

Written & directed in 1965 by Abe Burrows (the lyricist for Guys & Dolls) The Cactus Flower starred Lauren Bacall and ran for three years on Broadway collecting awards galore. In 1969 the play was adapted for film starring Walter Matthau, Ingrid Bergman and Goldie Hawn in her first screen role for which she won an Academy
