Caroline Horton’s appearance in the Netherlands premiere of her own play promises to be one of the highlights of this year’s Amsterdam theatre scene. Last year QETC played the Edinburgh Fringe - the world’s biggest theatre festival with over 2000 plays on offer! During their own run they discovered this jewel of a play, part comedy, part romance, playing to packed houses! Caroline Horton’s award-wining success at the Fringe prompted QETC to bring her and the original production to The Netherlands, so that an even wider audience can enjoy it.
You’re Not Like The Other Girls Chrissy, is the extraordinary true story of an eccentric young French woman’s affair with a tongue-tied English teacher, set against the backdrop of the Second World War. Waiting at Gare Du Nord for the train that will reunite her with her fiancé, this irrepressible Mademoiselle shares their love story: from a chance encounter at Cheadle tennis club to cosmopolitan 1930s Paris, before their inevitable separation by war.
