The antics of the Wicksteed home are a darkly satirical merry-go-round in Alan Bennett’s Habeas Corpus. Family, friends and the quest for sexual pleasures of the body (“corpus”) are the ruling passions in this farcical comedy of ill-manners. Through an escapade of mistaken identities and carnal encounters, one motto holds fast: “He whose lust lasts, lasts longest.”
Multi award-winning playwright Alan Bennett is also a screenwriter, actor and author. His other works for the stage include The History Boys, The Habit of Art, The Lady in the Van, Talking Heads, The Madness of George III, Kafka’s Dick, Enjoy & The Old Country.
As a director, Patrick Marber’s work includes Travesties (Menier Chocolate Factory, West End & Broadway) & Leopoldstadt (Wyndham’s Theatre).
Our first visit to the Menier Chocolate Factory was to see The Boy Friend in February 2020. I have had a lot of interest to return to this very unique and wonderful venue and thought an Alan Bennett classic was a very good reason to return.
