With Anna Carteret, Enzo Cilenti, Ian Gelder, Abigail McKern, Chris New, Charlotte Randle and Natalie Walter

Follows innocent abroad Steven Flowers as he travels from National Service in South-East Asia to 1950s Florence. He soon finds himself working for a chaotically-run language school, together with a cosmopolitan muddle of six foreign misfits killing their post-war nihilism in the cafés of Florence, the cradle of Renaissance high culture. Based around a leading character in…Nichols' acclaimed work Privates on Parade, this fast-paced, sexually charged production was the toast of London over the summer.
