    A comedy adapted by E.P. Dowdall
    From the Hungarian play, Illatszertar, by Miklos Laszlo

    Matsqui Centennial Auditorium


    It’s Christmas, 1937 in Budapest, Hungary.

    George works in a parfumerie. Just before the holiday, his boss suddenly fires him just for mistakenly believing he’s having an affair with the boss’ unfaithful wife. Meanwhile, George’s actual love life is thrown into chaos when he discovers the stranger he has been corresponding with by mail is none other than Amaila, a co-worker he constantly fights with.

    For the employees of the Parfumerie, only the truth can lead to a happy resolution in this old-fashioned, romantic Christmas tale that inspired the movie You’ve Got Mail and the Broadway musical, She Loves Me!
