The Ruling Class by Peter Barnes

Directed by Barry Evans

An uproarious satirical comedy with a sting in the tail

“First thing an Englishman does, straight from his mother’s womb, is touch his forelock.”

A blue-blood with a Messiah complex, the 14th Earl of Gurney is besieged by his ruthless family scheming to strip him of his title. Bubbling with acerbic wit and feverish energy, Olivier Award-winning and Oscar-nominated-writer Peter Barnes's razor-sharp satire mercilessly exposes the absurdity of unearned privilege. It became a successful feature film starring Peter O’Toole.

Presented by Teddington Theatre Club
