FROM THE BARN THEATRE ARCHIVE

Habeas Corpus

by Alan Bennett
Directed by Keith Thompson
15th – 22nd March 1980

…like seeing an animated McGill postcard, in which the captions have been written by an elegant verbal stylist; farce it is, but with such witty and literate lines as never before. We meet a family and their friends for whom the determination to put bodily satisfaction before everything else leads them through a maze of mistaken identities and sexual encounters. As Dr Wicksteed observes, “He who lusts last, lasts longest”.
