About the Premiere Production:


Synopsis: "The Hypocrite is a brilliantly satirical comedy that takes aim at the inadequacies of the ruling class and follows the groundswell of popular dissatisfaction with the political status quo during the English Civil War. It is very timely and very funny. It presents some extraordinary practical challenges in terms of staging. Talking headless corpses, ghosts walking through walls, people falling from drawbridges, a magical unbreakable earthenware vase, a giant collapsing Inigo Jones bed… the playwright has presented us with a glorious array of theatrical challenges to make the comedy fly and the politics land." --Pippa Hill, Literary Manager and Dramaturge.
