From the director of Titchfield Festival Theatre’s Scorched, Van Druten’s London Wall is being performed at the theatre from tomorrow until October 19.

Set in the 1930s, it takes place in a solicitor’s office where manager Brewer has a new squeeze with 19-year-old typist Pat.

Some of her colleagues attempt to save her, while others revel in her apparent humiliation and downfall. And her young and devoted boyfriend has to either stand-by, or fight for his love.

First performed in the West End in 1931, starring John Mills, London Wall was revived by the Finborough Theatre in 
2013.

Director Ben O’Shaughnessy says: ‘There’s something for everyone in this play. It is brilliantly comedic in parts but equally Van Druten really has something to say about the plight of women in society.

‘I’ve got a cast of actors whose 1930s accents alone add a beautiful flavour to this piece of theatre.’

Tickets: £9 to £11 from Titchfield Festival Theatre on (01329) 556156 or go to titchfieldfestivaltheatre.com.
