About the Show Less...

A flamboyant comedy of crime and punishment. Read More >

Restoration is a flamboyant comedy of crime and punishment.

Set in the 18th century, Lord Are needs a rich wife and Mr Hardache’s daughter wants money and a title. It seems like the perfect match until the jewels and high flying lifestyle never appear. Downstairs, the servants are restless…

Edward Bond’s satire is revived with brand new material added.
