One Night Only - JUNE 13 at 7pm

The Kaye Playhouse at Hunter College
68th St. between Park and Lexington, NYC

In Peter Shaffer’s charming comedy LETTICE & LOVAGE, eccentric tour guide Lettice Douffet channels her flair for the dramatic into embellishing the history of dreary Fustian House, the least stately of London’s stately homes, until she encounters Lotte Schoen, a straitlaced bureaucrat from the Preservation Trust. As their animosity gives way to an unlikely friendship, Lettice and Lotte discover that their elaborate fantasies have unintended real-world complications.
