The Hypocrite

Co-produced by Hull Truck Theatre & RSC

 

Richard Bean's hilarious new play centres around the moment in 1642 when Sir John Hotham, Governor of Hull denied entry to the city to King Charles I, which kick-started the English Civil War. It is also a sex farce.

 

Grant has written a heap of political protest songs that propel the action forward, performed by a fantastic three piece band onstage.

 

The sold out run in Hull has been received with loud guffaws and standing ovations, as well as some very nice reviews. It is directed by Phillip Breen and stars Mark Addy and Caroline Quentin and transfers to the Swan Theatre in Stratford-Upon-Avon from 31st March till the 29th April.
