A tribute to the late James Saunders. Read More >

journey to london 180 - orange tree 05
In the middle of his play, just as he had got his characters wound up and ready for the plot to take off, Restoration playwright John Vanbrugh put down his pen half way through a sentence and never wrote another word.

James Saunders took this play about a country MP and his family coming to London, who then find themselves caught up in the wicked ways of the city, and created the most sophisticated of Restoration comedy for our times – sex and marriage 1700 style with twentieth century hindsight.

This delightful comedy, which was a huge success in the old theatre in 1986, is now revived as the central part of our tribute to the late James Saunders.
