CFPC Options “The Big Day” at Cannes

While in Cannes and London, CVP inked an option for the feature version of Robin Hawdon’s internationally acclaimed stage play, “The Perfect Wedding” . The tale of a bridegroom who wakes on his wedding morning in his own bridal suite, with his bride-to-be about to arrive any moment, and finds a strange girl in bed beside him has already garnered world-wide acclaim.


'....funny without being deep, titillating without being dirty....warp-speed back-and-forth dialogue as characters skitter and scamper through this maze of a sit-com.... the full-house audience roared with delight.' (Green Bay Gazette)


'....the audience is left aching with laughter.... It makes for a crazy, wonderful evening.' (Germany - Bonn Schaufenster)


'.... a splendid evening in the theatre.... met with lengthy applause and shouts of approval.' (Austria - Vienna Donnerstag)


'The whole show reminded me of a cross between Fawlty Towers and a Whitehall Farce... forget the wedding album, this is one scrapbook you'll never tire of looking at.' (U.K. - Derbyshire Times)


'The play moves at the speed of light, with a riot a minute that leaves the audience crying with laughter....' (Hull Daily Mail)


Now with a working title of “The Big Day”, CFP believe this film has wide audience appeal and significant hit potential.
