Event Description

Society maven Millicent Jordan is making plans for a fancy dinner party. But thanks to washed-up actors, illness, errant servants and double-cross business deals, nothing goes as planned. A star-studded ensemble cast fills this melodramatic drawing-room comedy with humour, tragedy and glamour — and one unforgettable line of dialogue after another.

Introduced with host Nathalie Atkinson and a special guest, to be announced, in conversation about 1930s fashion and feminism in the costume design of pre-Code films.
