"Habeas Corpus"            MAIN HOUSE

A farce by Alan Bennett

26 September - 5 October 2002 at 7.30

Matinee Saturday 28 September at 2.30

Audio Described Performance Saturday 28 Sept at 2.30

Described by the critics when first premiered as "an animated Mc. Gill postcard", this witty farce introduces us to the Wicksteed family whose ruling passion is to put sex and the satisfaction of the body before everything else. The permissive society is taken to task   when other characters such as Lady Rumpers, Sir Percy Shorter, Cannon Throbbing, Connie-the flat chested spinster of Wicksteed and Mr Shanks the bra fitter move through a maze of mistaken identity and sexual encounters, to say nothing of the medical fraternity!
