“A place for everything and everything in its place”





Zut Alors Theatre in co-production with TwoSquared Productions


It’s 1929 and Sir Oscar Botcherby is on to another brilliant business venture. He’s arranged for his daughter Sylvia to marry Roderick Brooke-Sharpe, doubling the family fortune — a plan Sylvia passionately protests. After all, she’s never even met the man! Worse still, Roderick is coming over to meet his bride in ten minutes.

As the doorbell rings, revealing an outrageously sentimental gentleman and his disgruntled valet Pertwee, it’s time to mix a stiff Pink Whirligig. With a Blenheim Twist. But Sylvia is no longer Sylvia, and the new maid keeps on spilling the tea. And actually there’s something very, very odd about Roderick and something even odder about the valet… Misunderstandings and maladroit romances ensue within the walls of a sprawling country estate as two lovers swap places with their servants, set to the tune of a live jazz band.

Inspired by an 18th century original by Pierre de Marivaux, Zut Alors Theatre in co-production with TwoSquared Productions bring to the stage a witty and fast-paced comedy featuring an original jazz score.

Admission: £7.50(£6.50)
