Following its sell out run at the White Bear, Madness In Valencia, a beguiling and hilarious pageant of love, madness and mistaken identity, comes to the Trafalgar Studios.
In Lope De Vega’s Madness In Valencia, Floriano kills a Prince and flees, while Erifila escapes an abhorrent arranged marriage. Uncertain of their futures they take refuge in Valencia’s famed asylum. Locked up with fools and physicians they become entangled in the convolutions of a glorious farce.
When Madness In Valencia was staged at the White Bear, Time Out described it as “a rare delight”, saying: “What Simon Evans’s breathlessly pacy production illustrates is just how much enlivening fun can be had with a classic.”
