French cuisine and theatre

Dinner theatre is to make a welcome return at the restaurant Oh! Aux Bons Enfants, situated on the Quinta do Lago/Vale do Lobo road, which stages its first production tonight (February 6). Restaurant owners Daphne and Jean Jacques are presenting Visitors from London, a comedy by Neil Simon. The production is under the banner of the well known A Portada Theatre Group, the English company that has had enormous success with productions of Educating Rita, Arsenic & Old Lace and, most recently, One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest, to name but a few. Visitors from London, directed by Priscilla Morgan, tells the story of an English couple (portrayed by Nicky Moran and Tom Hardy) who have been invited to America for a very special occasion. What will be the outcome? Laugh as you find out!

For just 35 euros you can see the play, enjoy the atmosphere of this lovely restaurant and be served a delicious three course meal – don’t forget to choose your menu when you book.
