"Lettice and Lovage" is a tasty satirical comedy that tells, in a fine and nuanced humorous British style, the story of Lettice Douffet (a woman passionate about history, theater and Elizabethan cuisine), a tour guide to the Fustian Mansion, haunted mansion (in her opinion) meeting Charlotte (Lotte) Schoen, the apparently rigid representative of the Council of Historic Preservation and Protection of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
As in every workplace, Lettice decides to follow the "rule of the three I's", a rule inherited from her mother, imagining great deeds happening on the Great Stairs of the Mansion. Lotte dismisses her, but has the revelation of meeting a "spectacular" woman, who, weeks later, feels the need to look for. Lotte will share with her the fact that she inherited from her father (the owner of the Perseus Publishing House), the "eyes" for the beautiful, for the constructions with splendid architecture, which give identity.
The two spend more and more time together, resurrecting scenes from history and, inevitably, an accident occurs, leading to a public trial. Most intrigued by all the strange events that trigger the accident is lawyer Bardolph, a professional caught without his will in the imagination of actress Lettice Douffet.

”The messages embodied in the theme of the play, are wrapped by the author in a foam of humor, irony and social satire, in a game with the spectator, a game in which he is invented and reinvented to awaken our consciousness and understanding. A good show that I advise you to go without any restraint.Delia Marcfilme-cărți.ro
