Simon and Laura
September 29, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm BST£8.50
2A Films presents Simon and Laura, Muriel Box’s affectionate 1955 satire of the BBC. The eponymous Simon and Laura, played by Peter Finch and Kay Kendall, are a married couple of actors. They are glamorous, famous—and totally broke. Out of work, they reluctantly agree to appear in a TV show following their supposedly blissful home life. A sparkling comedy from one of Britain’s first mainstream female directors, Simon and Laura gleefully sends up the nascent world of reality television.
Introduced by Josephine Botting, Senior Curator of Fiction at the BFI
