Habeas Corpus

October 2017

The production will take place at Blackfriars Theatre Boston from Wednesday 18 October to Saturday 21 October inclusive. It is directed by Jo Warrick.


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. It originally starred Alec Guinness, Phyllida Law and Andrew Sachs.
