A Mad World My Masters

By Thomas Middleton

‘Raucously, hilariously and unashamedly filthy!’ Time Out London
‘Joyously madcap!’ The Telegraph
‘Exhausts the audience with laughing’ The Londonsit

English touring Theatre presents the Royal Shakespeare Company production.

London’s Soho, 1956.  Here, glamour rubs up against filth, and it likes it!  The posh mix with musicians, whores and racketeers; virginity is ‘no city trade’, and the dashingly cash-strapped bachelor, Richard Follywit, in pursuit of quick cash and a good time has to live on his wits…

An English Touring Theatre and Royal Shakespeare Company co-production.
