A comedy by William Douglas Home. Adapted to French by Marc-Gilbert Sauvajon.

Hugh is a famous entertainer at the BBC. He is also a womanizer who compulsively cheats on Liz, his wife of 15 years. When Liz decides to leave him for her lover John, Hugh, the gambler he is, tries everything to win her back. He uses all the tricks he knows and even enrolls his secretary and his governess to serve his purpose.

Originally a British comedy written by William Douglas Home in 1969, “Le Canard à l’orange” was adapted to the French taste by Marc-Gilbert Sauvajon in 1971, and has become a classic of the “Théâtre de Boulevard” ever since. The most recent reprise at the “Théâtre de la Michodière” in Paris has received several nominations to the “Molières awards”.
