RING ROUND THE MOON

By Jean Anouilh

Adapted by Christopher Fry

The play is set in a French chateau’s winter garden in spring on the occasion of a ball given by the elderly and wealthy Mme. Desmortes.  Diana is engaged to Frederic but favours his identical twin Hugo.  To save Frederic from an unhappy marriage, Hugo tries to distract him by bringing to the ball a beautiful dancer who masquerades as a mysterious personage and becomes the triumph of the occasion.  As the relationships between these four are tugged this way and that, the ball gets under way in a fresh, sophisticated comedy where a single actor plays both Hugo and Frederic.

A talented group of Barnstormer regulars and gifted young actors bring alive the comedy and sparkle of the play as the audience wonders where it will all end up.
