Lettice and Lovage
Sinodun Players’ production of Peter Shaffer’s comic play.
Originally written for Maggie Smith, Lettice and Lovage is centered around a flamboyant tour guide, Lettice, who loves to embellish the history behind an English country house, ultimately coming under the radar of a fact-conscious official from the Preservation Trust, Lotte Shoen. Neither impressed nor entertained by Lettice’s freewheeling history lessons, Shoen fires her. Not one however, to go without a fight, Lettice engages the stoic, conventional Lotte in a battle to the death of all that is sacred to the Empire and the crown.
