But when a quack doctor, a randy grandmother, a sleazy city gent, a schizophrenic spin doctor and a goody two-shoes all get involved, their best laid plans dissolve into riotous, hilarious farce. It's fast, curious and full of fun. A Mad World, My Masters is a brand new version of Barrie Keeffe's masterpiece, originally written in 1977, the year of the Queen's Silver Jubilee, and updated by the author specially for The New Wolsey in this Golden Jubilee year. Performers Harriette Ashcroft (Faith Mycock), Charlie Folorunsho (Charlie/Mr Smiley), Nick Haverson (Docotr O'Flaherty), Sue Holland (Vi Sprightly), Paul Leonard (St John Mycock), Maggie Tagney (Grandma Sprightly), Kraig Thornber (Mr Fox), Tony Turner (Ronald Sayers), Tim Welton (Will Sprightly).
