1930s Budapest, and romance is in the air for the employees of Maraczek’s Parfumerie. Georg and Amalia may bicker and squabble at work, but is it all for show? And just who is the ‘Dear Friend’ that each of them is lovingly writing to…?

An effervescent romantic comedy musical performed by Mountview’s Musical Theatre students, which sparkles with wit, romance and exuberant joy.
