Alan Bennett’s hilarious social satire.

This hilarious play is more than just a send-up of the Whitehall farces which abounded in the West End during the 1970s, and is a tribute to the many rich strands of British comedy-writing at the time.

Like a saucy Magill postcard as retouched by Magritte, or an end-of-the pier romp reorganised by Joe Orton, it describes how a collection of stock types from the “plush silk-stockinged district of Brighton’s Hove” find themselves propelled into the Permissive Society, as observed through the ironic eye of Alan Bennett.
