Overview, Cast and Creatives
"So all the time, while you were pretending to work, you've been having the most astonishing adventures in that corner?"
A forgotten masterpiece from one of Britain's greatest dramatists, J. B. Priestley.
As bankruptcy looms, the ever-optimistic Jim Cornelius, partner at import firm Briggs and Murrison, is fighting to keep his creditors happy and his spirits up. Tensions rise with the arrival of Judy, the beautiful, young typist who shows Cornelius the life he could have led...
Written for Ralph Richardson in 1935, Priestley observes the politics and tensions of daily office life with searing wit and humanity in this hilarious and heart-breaking story of friendship, unrequited love and business.
Director Sam Yates returns to the Finborough Theatre following his sell-out and critically acclaimed production of St John Ervine's Mixed Marriage in 2011.
