Lettice and Lovage

Lettice and Lovage, The Menier Chocolate Factory

Lettice, employed as a stately home tourist guide, has inherited theatricality and eccentricity from her mother. Caught using ‘alternative facts’ to embroider the history of the house by Lotte, her supervisor, she is dismissed. During the dismissal interview they uncover common ground with the result that she and Lotte develop an unlikely friendship. This is the first major revival of Lettice and Lovage since the 1987 West End production.
