We spoke to director Trevor Nunn and some of the cast and guests at the opening night of Love in Idleness at the Apollo Theatre in London's West End.

The production stars Eve Best, Anthony Head, Charlotte Spencer, Vivienne Rochester, Edward Bluemel and Nicola Sloane.

Terence Rattigan's play looks at what happens when 18 year-old Michael returns home after a four year absence to find his widowed mother the mistress of a cabinet minister.

The show opened at the Menier Chocolate Factory in March, to five star reviews including one from WhatsOnStage's Sarah Crompton who wrote that "The whole thing is performed with a real sense of period tone and comic timing but also with finely calibrated sense of the powerful emotions at work."

It is the first time the play has been performed in London since 1944.

Love in Idleness runs at the Apollo Theatre until 1 July.
