The Swan Theatre Company presents

Losing Louis
By Simon Mendes da Costa
Directed by Ian White

Monday 11th to Saturday 16th July

Simon Mendes da Costa's black comedy was well received when it was first produced in Hampstead Theatre in 2005. It is set in a large bedroom along two different timelines, one in 1950s and the other present day.

The 1950s scene sees Louis and his wife, Bobbie, with their young lodger, Bella. In the present day, we see Louis' two sons, Tony and Reggie with their wives, meeting for Louis' funeral.

Interwoven events from the past and present blend together in this touching comedy.

FINAL NIGHT - only odd seats left, available at Box Office.

Doors open 7:15pm, show starts 7:45pm and finishes 10.00 pm.
