An exhilarating and uproarious farce by award-winning playwright Richard Bean (One Man, Two Guvnors)

April 1642. Sir John Hotham loves his power, his money, his maid and the fact that his head hasn’t been removed from his shoulders by an axe. He is Governor of Hull, and he should be on the side of Parliament. He is supposed to keep King Charles out of the city, but what if Charles wins? With rebellion stirring in his city and a siege outside its walls, Hotham must keep both sides happy and his other assets intact. The play was a hit for the RSC/Hull Truck last year, celebrating Hull as City of Culture, 2017.

For the fifth consecutive year Rose Bruford College's London Season of three productions will be presented at Stratford Circus Arts Centre.

The plays showcase the performance talent of the final year BA (Hons) Acting and BA (Hons) Actor Musicianship students and the technical, artistic and management technical talents of final students from the School of Design, Management and Technical Arts.
