The central character to the play, and the main draw, is Madame Arcati. This part could have been written for Jennifer Saunders, it gives her plenty of opportunity to display her excellent comic talent and she does not disappoint. She has us all laughing with her sitting knees akimbo in the most unladylike posture, showing the inside of her thighs. Not exactly Sharon Stone! We love it when she arrives after a long bike ride, flapping her dress at the neckline and then hemline to cool off.
