Time Out Says

This Restoration-inspired comedy by Mike Bartlett takes aim at 21st century London

Acclaimed playwright Mike Bartlett is back at Lyric Hammersmith after the success of 2020's 'Love, Love, Love' with a new comedy. 'Scandaltown' is inspired by outrageous Restoration comedies, known for their romantic shenanigans, wildly implausible plot twists and biting social satire. It's set in present day London, where Miss Phoebe Virtue discovers her wicked twin Jack may be darkening his reputation with outlandish behaviour. So she sets off to investigate...

Bartlett's drama is a celebration of theatre's 'restoration' after the closures of the pandemic, kind of like the triumphant 18th century reopening of theatres after Cromwell's lengthy ban. It's directed by Lyric Hammersmith artistic director Rachel O'Riordan.
