Brides Of March 1973 PhotoA little slice of history which never got into the history books. A young member of the Foreign Office living in Finchley is bequeathed five beautiful women by a sheik whose life he once saved. They are ‘delivered’ when his wife happens to be away, but when she returns, the sparks begin to fly. A hilarious and inventive farce from the author of Dry Rot and Diplomatic Baggage.

The action of the play takes place in the living-room of the Scudamores’ house, No 66, Pinetops Avenue, North London in the late 1940’s.

FDS last performed ‘The Brides of March’ in 1965
