Violent, funny and in incredibly bad taste, Middleton’s darkly comic masterpiece presents a licentious, corrupt world in which an out of control ruling class must be held to account by a man who carries the skull of his dead girlfriend in his rucksack…

Savage wit, Machiavellian intrigue and brutal violence combine in a play that is both thrillingly theatrical and a shockingly modern parable for our times.
