Lettice and Lovage is centered around a flamboyant tour guide who loves to embellish the history behind an English country house and butts heads with a fact-conscious official at the house. This play was written specifically for Maggie Smith who originated the title role of Lettice Douffet.
It won Tony awards for Best Play, Best Actress in a Play, Best Featured Actress in a Play and Best Direction of a Play. Shaffer is well known for the plays Equus and Amedeus.
