1981 - 1982

The Boy Friend

Nice, France   c 1926


The Jazz Age lives on in Sandy Wilson's The Boy Friend, a light romantic spoof of 1920s Golden Age musical comedy.


Set against the backdrop of the French Riviera, The Boy Friend tells the story of English heiress Polly, who is longing for only one thing: a boy friend. Polly's father, convinced that any boy who isn't wealthy will court Polly strictly for her financial situation, forbids her to encourage any potential suitors. Honouring his wishes, Polly explains to Tony, the messenger boy with whom she's fallen in love, that she is no rich girl. This is just the tip of the mistaken identity iceberg, as love proceeds to find its way charmingly through nearly every member of the cast and bring them all to a happy ending.
