Review of THE MAN IN THE WHITE SUIT (follow link). Written and directed by Sean Foley, adapted from the 1951 Ealing Comedy. We saw it in Bath, on its pre-London run. It will be in London until January. This is going to be a massive stage success, 5 star.

Picture: Rufus Hound as Garry & Lucy Briggs-Owen as Joanna.
