An extraordinary evening of rousing songs, eccentric masks and rumbustious puppets. Inspired by William Hogarth s satirical etchings, A Rake s Progress is the wild and astonishing tale of Tom Rakewell. Possessed of his dead father s fortune Tom forsakes the country life and embarks on a riotous journey deep into the heart and seething underbelly of eighteenth century London. Urged on by a Mephistophelian manservant and pursued by his spurned lover, Sarah Young, he seems set on a road to ruin.
