Divorce Me, Darling

Divorce Me, Darling is a musical written by Sandy Wilson.

Set ten years after the events depicted in Wilson’s much better known The Boy Friend, it is, appropriately, a pastiche of 1930s musicals (in particular those of Cole Porter) rather than the “Roaring Twenties” shows (mostly early Rodgers and Hart) that inspired the earlier show.

Reviews & Awards

Jenny Scott - Richmond & Twickenham Times

October 2000

Naughty but still Nice, the gels desperately seeking the ‘boyfriend’ in 1926 return to Nice ten years later sadder, wiser and slightly disillusioned. Sandy Wilson’s Divorce Me Darling! was given a lively production co-directed by Elizabeth Ross, Melanie Edwards (who also choreographed the show) and musically directed by Carole Smith and Terry Saunders for BROS Theatre Company at Hampton Hill Playhouse last week.
