    More details :


    Christopher Hampton’s fiercely funny ‘The Philanthropist’ first premiered at the Royal Court in 1970, and after a 2005 London run, returns triumphantly again. A twist on Molière’s ‘The Misanthrope’, the story follows a bachelor don and his campus cohort as the obsess over the meaning of life, sex, love; gleefully unaware of the assassination of the prime minister, his cabinet and a host of celebrated writers out in the real world.


    Directed by Simon Callow and starring Simon Bird (‘The Inbetweeners’), Lily Cole (‘St. Trinian’s’), Charlotte Ritchie (‘Fresh Meat’), Tom Rosenthal (‘Friday Night Dinner’) and BAFTA winner Matt Berry ('Toast of London', ‘The IT Crowd’) this cast know comedy, and are bound to be astounding as the group of oblivious students sheltered inside their cosy university bubble.


    In our own philanthropic move we’re practically giving away tickets, with prices at only £25 for Band B tickets or £15 for Band C. What a steal!
