Greg only met Ginny a month ago but has already made up his mind that she’s the girl for him. When she tells him that she’s going to visit her parents, he decides this is the moment to ask her father for his daughter’s hand. Discovering a scribbled address, he follows her to Buckinghamshire where he finds Philip and Sheila enjoying a peaceful Sunday morning breakfast in the garden, but the only thing is – they’re not Ginny’s parents. Mistaken identities and cross purposes that click and fizz to the end, guarantees two hours of continuous laughter. Beautifully crafted, wonderfully funny and charmingly English.  A delicious two-course meal in the restaurant before the show.

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s highly anticipated Cinderella is  a complete reinvention of the classic fairy tale and is based on an original idea by Emerald Fennell, the Emmy Award nominated lead scriptwriter. Andrew said: "I have long wanted to write my own version of Cinderella but could never find a take on the classic story that really grabbed me. Emerald Fennell has written something truly exciting and original, and the moment I read her outline I knew I'd found my latest collaborator. I'm very pleased to be working with David Zippel, a hugely witty lyricist, once again.
