The Three Fat Women of Antibes is based on the short story of the same name by William Somerset Maugham, first published in 1933. Three well-to-do ladies of a certain age take a long holiday in Antibes, which serves the dual purpose of incessant bridge-playing and a serious attempt to shed the pounds. Perhaps their greatest challenge beyond reduction is to find a reliable fourth for cards, and on this occasion, they believe they’ve found the holy grail in the irritatingly slim shape of Lena. Vivid, witty and spiteful, it is perhaps at odds with contemporary conceptions of sisterhood, but the tales of trumps taken and “antifat” rusks eaten will make you laugh with agonised recognition of weak will and its consequent mayhem.

Brought to you in the surroundings of the King House Tea Rooms, antipasti board will be served before the performance - appropriately enough !
