‘The simple, attractive story has been a winner
in one staging after another…’

The Stage



Lise loves Colas. Colas loves Lise. But Lise’s mother, the Widow Simone, has agreed that her wayward daughter should marry Alain, son of a pompous, wealthy vineyard owner. Alain however, is more interested in his precious umbrella than romance.


What ensues is a series of mischievous ‘arabesques’ as Lise works her way out of the Widow’s marriage contract and into the arms of her love-struck beau.


A popular family favourite because of its engaging story and colourful humour, this stunning new production, set in 1950s rural France, will leave you applauding for more.


Approx. running time: 2 hours
