Competition: Win tickets to see Jeannie at the Finborough Theatre, London
The first professional production in 80 years
“What’s the use of romance if there’s no truth in it?”
It is 1936 in a “wee one-eyed” town in Scotland. Jeannie is a drudge for her mean controlling father, but dreams of a different life. When she receives a large inheritance, she seizes the opportunity to finally escape to the glamour and sophistication of European travel.
During her stay in Vienna, she encounters Stanley, a washing machine inventor from Yorkshire, and then a real Viennese Count. But Jeannie is no pushover. She knows her own mind, she is a stickler for the truth, and she hates scroungers… A 1930s version of the Cinderella story from a rediscovered female playwright, Jeannie is a charming light romantic comedy, ideal for the Christmas season, and unseen in London since 1940.
