Hotel Paradiso is a French farce set in a Parisian hotel, where playwright Monsieur Feydean is residing to write a new play.
Whilst suffering a bad case of writers block, the antics of the other guests in the hotel provide him with a wealth of material to write a very successful play.
Monsieur Boniface is severely henpecked by his wife and has a clandestine affair with Marcelle, the beautiful but neglected wife of Henri. Throw in some mistaken identities, misunderstandings, a maid, hotel manager and some gendarmes this makes a typically hilarious farce.
The scene is set in 1910 and at Admiral Costumes we have a great selection of period wear for this time.
Monsieur Boniface is very smart and elegant, whilst his wife is rather drab and formidable. Marcelle dresses in a very flamboyant and inappropriate way with bright colours and large hats, not to mention her lounge attire.
We have excellent gendarme and French maid outfits, opera cloaks, hotel porter and parasols and accessories to add detail to the costumes.
We are delighted to be supporting Tudor Players with their excellent production in October.
