Au Trafalgar Studio One

Prix à partir de € 48.90

“Intellectually stimulating, touchingly sympathetic and gloriously, gloriously funny” - Sunday Times Christopher Hampton’s most celebrated play has been delighting audiences and since its premiere at the Royal Court in 1970. A biting ‘bourgeois comedy’ and a fiendishly clever inversion of Moliere’s ‘The Misanthrope’, Simon Callow’s new production boasts some of today’s most exciting young stage and screen actors. Out in the ‘real world’ the Prime Minister and his cabinet have been assassinated and England's most treasured writers are being murdered one by one! Back in the cosy bubble of university life, a bachelor don anguishes over sex, marriage, anagrams and the meaning of life. Did someone suggest academics were ‘out of touch’? “Christopher Hampton's finest play"
