Following a sold out run at the Menier Chocolate Factory, Trevor Nunn's new production of Terence Rattigan's brilliant 1944 comedy Love in Idleness transfers to the Apollo Theatre for a strictly limited run of 50 performances only starring Olivier Award winner Eve Best, Anthony Head and Edward Bluemel.

Set during the final years of the Second World War, eighteen year-old Michael Brown returns from Canada full of youthful ideology and radical left wing views after a four-year absence. But he is shocked to find his widowed mother Olivia is now the mistress of wealthy cabinet minister Sir John Fletcher, enjoying a comfortable society life. When Michael and John clash, sparks fly and relationships are tested as everyone learns some difficult lessons in love.
