Habeus Corpus
By Alan Bennett  
Directed by  Ray Newton

Mismanaged lust – mistaken identity – dropped trousers…’Habeas Corpus’ has all the ingredients of a classic farce, spiced with the warmth and humanity of Alan Bennett’s razor-sharp wit.

The antics at the Wicksteed home are a satirical merry-go-round. Family, friends and the sexual satisfaction of the “corpus” (body) are the ruling passions in this farcical comedy of ill-manners. Through a dance of mistaken identities and carnal encounters, one motto holds fast: “He whose lust lasts, lasts longest.”
