This is the definitive edition of Rattigan's classic comedy re-issued alongside nationwide tour by English Touring Theatre. "French Without Tears" is the play that first made Rattigan's name at the age of 25, when it ran for over a thousand performances in the 1930s. In this masterpiece of light comedy, a group of 'bright young things' are attempting to learn French on the Riviera, and in fact doing anything but. NHB's definitive edition, with an extensive introduction and chronology by Dan Rebellato, is re-issued alongside a new production by English Touring Theatre, which will be seen all over the UK.
