Habeas Corpus
By Alan Bennett

Twenty two years after RAODS first performed it, we now return to this hilariously entertaining, bawdy picture postcard comedy that combines the fast-paced fun of a classic farce with Bennett’s unmistakably dry Northern wit.

It’s a balmy summer afternoon, and a variety of upper middle class residents are certainly feeling the heat. The sex-mad Dr Arthur Wicksteed is caught in a compromising position with a gorgeous young patient. His wife, Muriel craves the reawakening of her passion – with anyone from a travelling salesman to her husband’s bitter rival. While Arthur's sister, Connie is obsessed with developing her flat chest and makes a plan to help nature along... and there are plenty of offers to give her a helping hand!

Will the doctor get away with his clumsy attempts at seduction? Will Canon Throbbing, the randy local vicar, still be left unsatisfied? Will Connie’s new extensive bust land her the man of her dreams? Will the despairing Mr Purdue finally pop his cork? There's only one way to find out!

Not suitable for children under 12 years of age.
