Overview

"Delightful... the wit starts flowing from the first scene." - Telegraph

"A ripely entertaining portrait of an eccentric, forgotten celebrity and the scandalous allure of the stage." - Evening Standard

Premiered at Hampstead Theatre in September 2015, in a production directed by Richard Eyre and featuring Simon Russell Beale as Foote.

A riotously funny play exploring our obsession with celebrities, based on Ian Kelly's award-winning biography of the same name. In Georgian London no one is more famous than Samuel Foote. Satirist, impressionist, and dangerous comedian, he is a bona fide celebrity in an age obsessed with fame. He even has the ear of the King. But does fame make you mad?
