Present Habeas Corpus by Alan Bennett (not for children)
23rd to 25th May 2013

Habeas Corpus is one of the funniest, non-pc and most irreverent plays around. Written by Bennett in the 1970s, it revolves around the lustful inclinations of Dr. Arthur Wicksteed, General Practitioner of Hove, his family and others drawn on to his merry-go-round. These include: Arthur's wife, Muriel, frustrated and lusting after Arthur's old rival, Sir Percy Shorter, President of the BMA; Arthur's sister Constance, whose flat chest has always held her back; her intended, Canon Throbbing, and Dennis, Arthur's hypochondriac son. At his best when dying from an obscure disease, Dennis has a life-changing experience when he meets Felicity, newly-arrived from Rhodesia with her mother, Delia, Lady Rumpers. Add to the mix appliance fitter Denzil Shanks, manic depressive Mr Purdue and Mrs Swabb - the char who tries to keep everyone on the straight and narrow - and you have an evening of outrageous hilarity.
