England, 1976. The Winter of Discontent. Cold hearts seek comfort and poor souls look for love. A woman nurses her dying father; a cleaner greedily devours her Open University course in the fight for a better life; a career woman seeks the path that her life never took, and the loyal friend, always in the shadows, fears he will disappear one day and no-one will notice. We are in the lonely hearts column of life. "Save me" is the silent call that drifts from their aching bodies. But wait. Help is at hand. Don John is here! Dangerous, naughty and irresistible, Don John is a vessel for all our desires The legend of the world's greatest lover meets the controlled madness of Kneehigh Theatre.Performers Stu Barker, Nina Dogg Filippusdottir, Carl Grose, Craig Johnson, Patrycia Kujawska, Dominic Lawton, Dave Mynne, Gisli Orn Gardarsson, Ian Ross, Mike Shepherd, Alex Vann, Kristen Hutchinson.
