The Way of the World

By William Congreve

Directed by James Macdonald

Designed by Anna Fleischle

Press Night Thursday 5 April 2018

Family, money, desire: the rules of the game, the way of the world.

Lady Wishfort's sprawling, dysfunctional family are riven by desire - there's everything to lose and six thousand pounds to gain. Congreve's glorious ensemble of characters battles it out in this satirical comedy where everyone needs to win just to get by.
