Park Theatre and Adam Blanshay Productions present the English Language World Premiere of
La Cage aux Folles [The Play]
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?
Michael Matus (Phantom of the Opera, West End) plays Georges and Paul Hunter (founder of Told By An Idiot) plays Albin. Completing one of the largest casts in Park Theatre history are Georgina Ambrey, Louise Bangay, Mark Cameron, Simon Hepworth, Arthur Hughes, Sarah Lam, Syrus Lowe, Peter Straker and William Nelson.
“La Cage aux Folles is a great - and brilliantly funny - play about living the life you want to live. It’s also a bit of an eye-opener about what it was to be out and gay in the early seventies. But there’s nothing remotely preachy about - it’s zany, outrageous, mad. A rampant farce, and utterly life-affirming.” Simon Callow
