In this charming and beautifully written comedy, Aristocrats Victor and Hilary, happily married for some twenty years, are forced by the new 1950s Inheritance Tax laws to open their stately home to the half crown paying public. A charming American ventures into the private apartments, encounters Hilary and both are targeted by Cupid’s merciless arrow. To rescue his threatened life and love, Victor resorts to an ancient and violent method of resolving the dispute.
Written by Hugh and Margaret Williams, one of Britain’s favourite play-writing teams of the Sixties, The Grass Is Greener was a huge hit in London’s West End, and was subsequently adapted into an award-winning film starring Cary Grant, Deborah Kerr, Robert Mitchum and Jean Simmons.
