The best place to learn French is surely at a beautiful seaside villa on the Riviera? You’d certainly think so. However, a group of young English men soon discover that there’s only one thing harder to understand than a new language – girls.

It all seems pretty simple. Kit loves Diana and she loves him. And Bill. Oh, and Alan, of course. Then there’s Jack, she’s in love too… Not so simple after all.

  • saw French Without last evening at Malvern, a super evening of light theatre, I was afraid that the jokes a would be ponderous and that time would drag, not at all, It was crisp, teasingley amusing and nicely paced. Acting was terrific, keep coming to Malvern.

  • I thought the production was fantastic. The direction was so classy and the acting was spot on. I loved the scene changes - what a clever way to get round the 'curtain'. Well done to everyone involved, especially the lovely Ben Mansfield! If you haven't seen it yet - go and get your ticket before it sells out.
