La Cage aux Folles


12 February - 21 March 2020    From: £22.25



La Cage aux Folles - Park Theatre and Adam Blanshay Productions present the English Language World Premiere of La Cage aux Folles The Play By Jean Poiret

A new translation by Simon Callow Supported by Park Theatre’s Producers’ Circle — Enter the glittering world of La Cage aux Folles – the play which spawned four blockbuster films and the Tony Award-winning musical. See the original, riotous and heartfelt farce for the first time in the English language. Nightclub owner Georges and his dazzling drag artiste partner Albin create the most spectacular shows in St. Tropez. But when Georges’ son Laurent announces his engagement to the daughter of a notoriously right-wing politician determined to bring the curtain down on the town’s vibrant nightlife, the real performance begins. As Georges and Albin entertain their soon-to-be in-laws and attempt to conceal their true nature for the sake of their son, how long can the façade last? “This is a brilliantly funny play, and an eye-opener about what it was to be out and gay in the 1970s. It’s zany, outrageous and utterly life-affirming” Simon Callow
