Tour Information

George Etheridge’s The Man of Mode transports us back to Restoration England, a world of excess, vanity, and lust.

From the wealth of consumerist London to the to the fear of social failure and a desire for revenge, this masterpiece is a compelling satire on the lives of Etheridge’s fashionable playgoers in seventeenth century London society.

 

Produced by Cheek by Jowl. The first performance of The Man of Mode was at the Old Town Hall, Hemel Hempstead on 27th September 1985.
