Gentlemen Prefer Blondes II

1979 - 1980

A tempestuous triangle of love between a woman, herself and MONEY. A relentless story of a woman driven to the depths of emotion by a craving beyond control – the thrilling sound of notes (preferably $100) falling like snowflakes, of diamond rattling against diamond and the roar of the effervescent stock market. A rushing leaping drama of charm and excitement unrolls against the cinemascopic backcloth of the twinkling twenties.

  • Written by Bryony Lavery, inspired by Anita Loos's novel

‘… delicate, witty and dazzling in its slick synthesis of dialogue, song and dance… The play is very funny and excellently performed by the company’s versatile actor-musicians.’
Ros Franey Time Out Nov 1979

‘Monstrous Regiment have a definite message, but this isn’t a man-hating show and closet chauvinists should come out and see it.’
Honor Wilson Bristol Evening Post Nov 1979
