Synopsis:
The show takes place at Madame Dubonnet’s Finishing School on the French Riviera. Polly, an English heiress, falls in love with Tony, a delivery boy. Conscious of her father's warning to beware of boys dating her for her family’s money; Polly pretends to be just a secretary. Things get complicated with the unexpected arrival of Polly's father, and Tony’s parents, Lord and Lady Brockhurst. Polly and Tony have shared the same secret – they both come from wealthy families. However, everyone ends up living happily ever after. The show is a rollicking parody of the musicals of the 1920s.
