by Mike Bartlett

Directed by Stuart Watson

Tuesday 19 - Saturday 23 March 2024, 7.45pm, main stage
Matinee: Saturday 23 March, 3pm

Moral and progressive young heroine Phoebe Virtue disguises herself as an IT consultant and journeys to London to rescue her brother Jack from the temptations of the depraved metropolis, where she suspects he is taking drugs and reading the Daily Telegraph.

Meanwhile, vampy, scheming Lady Susan Climber attempts to ascend the ladder of influence and land a breakfast TV spot by getting cancelled for being outrageous on social media. Their fates collide in a night of mayhem, mistaken identities, and mind-blowing sex at the Netflix masked ball.

Mike Bartlett’s post-pandemic love letter to the reopened theatres is a rollicking modern take on Restoration comedy that holds a satirical mirror up to the fads and fashions of our time, as well as a joyful celebration of London.
