The play, translated by Christopher Fry, had its West End premiere at the Globe Theatre (now the Gielgud) in a production starring Paul Scofield, Claire Bloom and Margaret Rutherford. Set around a lavish ball at a chateau, the tale centres on twin brothers, an heiress who’s engaged to one twin but desperately in love with the other, and a ballet dancer embroiled in a plot hatched by the more calculating of the brothers. No word on who will play the twins. Sean Mathias will direct.
