The Boy Friend is a musical comedy that takes us back to the Jazz Age  of the 1920's. Set in the French Riviera, we meet Polly, an English heiress attending Mme. Dubonnet's Finishing School. Polly falls in love with Tony,   a delivery boy. Recalling her father's warning to beware fortune seekers, she posses as a working girl, unaware Tony is in fact the missing son of the wealthy Lord Brockhurst. Things get complicated with the unexpected arrival of Polly's parents and Lord and Lady Brockhurst – but not to worry, a happy ending is in store for all.
