A riotous extravaganza with a big cast and beautiful costumes, ‘The Girl from Maxim’s’ is a comedy of errors that will have you laughing your head off! An unaccustomed night of drinking leads to misunderstandings and Dr Petypon is forced to pretend showgirl Shrimp is his wife at a society wedding – trying to keep the truth from his uncle (the General), the congregation and, not to mention, Dr Petypon’s actual wife!

Director Joe Ruelle describes ‘The Girl from Maxim’s’ as the funniest play he has ever read. Joe, who has just published his second book ‘Nguoc Chieu Vun Vut’ /’Zigzagging against traffic’ (his first book reached the top of the Vietnamese best seller list in it’s first week of release), has many years experience of writing, comedy and TV. This is Joe’s second time in the HITS director’s chair.
