A New Way To Please YouA new law allowing the culling of all men at the age of 80 and all women at the age of 60 is passed, as these people are no longer deemed useful members of society. Of course, certain people find this enforced slaughter slightly objectionable and cross-generational fireworks ensue. 

Sean Holmes directs this black comedy from Middleton, Rowley and Massinger. Holmes, who is Associate Director with Oxford Stage Company, has previously directed Richard III, Measure For Measure and The Roman Actor for the RSC.
