Three pairs of tickets are up for grabs to see A Damsel in Distress at Chichester Festival Theatre on Monday, June 8.
With music and lyrics by George Gershwin and Ira Gershwin and book by Jeremy Sams and Robert Hudson, the show is based on the novel by P G Wodehouse and the play by P G Wodehouse and Ian Hay (May 30-June 27).
George is an American composer working at the Savoy Theatre in London. Maud is the thoroughly-English Lady Marshmoreton, a beautiful socialite who lives in a castle with a ha-ha and a drawbridge. They really shouldn’t have met because George needs to complete his musical and Maud needs to marry most urgently and already has someone totally unsuitable in mind. Luckily Maud’s fierce aunt, Lady Caroline, has a solution – to lock her charge in the tower.
