She Loves Me

Date: 3 Aug 2018

Maraczek’s Parfumerie, Budapest. Head clerk Georg Nowack (Rowan Witt) and the newest employee Amalia Balash (Caitlin Berry) are in love – just not with each other. 

Each is engaged in a passionate and anonymous correspondence with a ‘Dear Friend’ who they are yet to meet.

But it’s not just Georg and Amalia who are dealing with relationship problems. Cashier Ilona Ritter (Zoe Gertz) is finding her boyfriend and co-worker Stephen Kodaly (Kurt Phelan) a less than reliable lover; owner Mr Maraczek (Tony Llewellyn-Jones) has received some disturbing news about his wife; clerk Ladislov Sipos (Jay James-Moody) will do anything to keep his job; and delivery boy Arpad (Joel Granger) has greater ambitions for his future.

Based on the 1937 play by Miklos Laszlo, She Loves Me premiered on Broadway in 1963 and was revived there recently in 2016.

This Hayes Theatre company production is directed by Erin James.
