Habeas Corpus


7th – 11th February 2017

Written by Alan Bennett

Directed by David Burt

Habeas Corpus is a riotous romp concerning a family (the Wicksteeds) and their friends and acquaintances for whom the determination to put sex and the satisfaction of the body before everything else is the ruling passion of their lives. To say the play is a farcical comedy is an understatement, as time and time again in typical Bennett style he takes us through maze of mistaken identity, adding layer upon layer of comedy genius. Fast, funny, relentless laughter from beginning to end , as Arthur Wicksteed says at the close “He who lusts last lasts longest”
