The Libertine

2 October - 5 October
The Libertine

A play by Stephen Jeffreys

Rochester was a man who was endowed with every conceivable talent and chose, deliberately and methodically, to waste each one.

John Wilmot, Earl of Rochester. Charismatic poet, playwright and rake with a legendary appetite for excess. An anti-monarchist friend of Charles II, an atheist who converted to Christianity and a lyric poet who revelled in obscenity. Yet when a chance encounter with an actress sends him reeling, he is forced to reconsider everything he thinks and feels.

With all the wit, flair and bawdiness of a Restoration comedy, this bold new production of Stephen Jeffreys' provocative play is an incisive critique of life in an age of excess.

Warning: the play contains strong language and adult themes throughout.


An amateur production by arrangement with Nick Hern Books
