What is it?
You’re Not Like The Other Girls Chrissy is set in liberated Paris 1945, and written and performed by Caroline Horton.
Christiane waits at Gare Du Nord for a train to England to be reunited her with her fiancé. Whilst she waits, this gloriously irrepressible Mademoiselle recounts the extraordinary tale of her love affair with Cyril, a tongue-tied English teacher from Staffordshire. From a chance encounter at Cheadle tennis club, their story takes us on to cosmopolitan 1930s Paris before their inevitable separation by war. A separation which she hopes, today, will finally come to an end. A fond, comical and ultimately poignant portrait of one woman’s experience of love and war. You’re Not Like The Other Girls Chrissy is inspired by a shoebox full of wartime letters.
