The award winning production You’re Not Like The Other Girls Chrissy is to be staged at The Cryer August 15 and 16 at 7.30pm.
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.
In 2002, Christiane, moved into sheltered housing. Amongst a lifetime of clutter, was a shoebox containing her wartime letters. Over the last year, Caroline has pieced together her story from the letters and from their conversations about Christiane’s youth, her romance with Cyril and her memories of occupied France. These memories are full of humour, resilience and her love of life.
You’re Not Like The Other Girls Chrissy was commissioned by China Plate/Warwick Arts Centre/mac
for the Bite Size Festival 2010. It premiered at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2010.
