In his younger days, Robert Simon was a first-rate stage-manager in provincial rep. Now he keeps house for his West End actress wife, while amusing himself with lots of little sexual adventures. In fact, a thoroughly happy man. Until one evening, through the clumsy intervention of a psychiatrist, his happiness and his marriage are destroyed. He plans a hideous revenge, both on his wife and on the psychiatrist…a revenge which allows him to discover all his old talents.

Stage Struck was first presented on 21st November 1979, at the Vaudeville Theatre
