Eighteenth century France is the setting for a lesser-known Noel Coward comedy coming to Bradford Alhambra.

The Marquise tells of an influential aristocrat who insists on marrying his daughter to a man she does not love.

The father hopes to stifle the girl's real love, but does not reckon on the intervention of a worldly-wise older woman.

Kate O'Mara plays the title role alongside four actors from TV drama The Royal in the "utterly charming" play.

All the style and glamour of the age of chivalry is promised from February 10-14. Book at Keighley Information Centre in the town hall or phone 01274 432000.
