Press Release: HAPPY BIRTHDAY
Metro Theatre Vancouver is excited to present Beverley Cross’s adaptation of the French play Pyjama Pour Six – Happy Birthday. Directed by Kayt Roth, it will be on stage at Metro, Friday February 11th – Sunday the February 27th, 2022.
Set in the 1980’s, Happy Birthday is theatrical comfort food – light funny, and a great way to beat the post COVID blues.
Bernard has foolishly asked his mistress, Brigit, to his home on her birthday despite the fact his wife Jacqueline is present. He has also invited his oldest friend, Robert and asks him to pretend Brigit is his mistress. Robert refuses as he is having an affair with Jacqueline, but Bernard cunningly involves him anyway. By chance, a temporary maid engaged for the evening arrives when Jacqueline and Bernard are out and her name is also Brigit. Robert mistakes her for Bernard’s girl friend. Frantic complications in which identities, plots and counter plots and bedrooms are exchanged with ever increasing confusion transpire until an unexpected ending makes everyone happy including the maid who has acquired a mink coat and lots of money.
“ This is not your typical show about men behaving badly – the women are just as dynamic and calculating as their counterparts.” Everyone has their own agenda, leaving many guessing, smiling and wondering how this Birthday could possibly end. ” Kayt Roth, Director.
