The Ruling Class

An uproarious satirical comedy with a sting in the tail
Sat 12 May 2018 to Fri 18 May 2018
Hampton Hill Theatre: Main Auditorium
“Terrific characterisations on stage”
“The plot twists and turns as the surprises keep coming”
“Great comic moments lighten the dark undertones of the plot”

“First thing an Englishman does, straight from his mother’s womb, is touch his forelock.”

A blue-blood with a Messiah complex, the 14th Earl of Gurney is besieged by his ruthless family scheming to strip him of his title. Bubbling with acerbic wit and feverish energy, Olivier Award-winning and Oscar-nominated-writer Peter Barnes's razor-sharp satire mercilessly exposes the absurdity of unearned privilege. It became a successful feature film starring Peter O’Toole.

Warning:  This play contains scenes of a sexual nature, gunshots and strobe lighting.
