The Backs(l)ide - Unity Theatre

Thursday 6th June



Shakespeare is dead – and there’s a new king in town.


Freshly crowned, Charles III is young, (not so) single and more than ready to mingle – a loose-lipped libertine with the morals of an alley cat.


But the champagne-slugging provocateur had better watch out: there’s a country to govern, a wife in the wings – and more than one target on his back…


Freely adapted by the company from George Etherege’s ‘The Man of Mode’, LIPA present a (non)traditional English ‘comedy of manners’ with a distinctly 2024 twist.

The BackS(l)ide. It’s 1666…and all that.
