Written in 1983 when Margaret Thatcher was Prime Minister, and set in 1660, when England's brief experiment with Republicanism ended with the restoration of the monarchy. A raucous treat for the senses - Barker's brutal, poetic, and gruesome Restoration tale of kingsâ whores, bankersâ gold, and a widowâs quest to salvage a life from the debris and chaos of England at War. Oh. And her husband's body parts... As she is forced to react in a world of shifting loyalty, trust, power, and money, she discovers that the court of Charles II is as dirty and dangerous as any battlefield.Performers Geraldine James, Matthew Kelly, Evie Dawnay, Leander Deeny, Tom Godwin, Gemma Johnson, Emil Marwa, Chris Porter, Nicholas Rowe, Karl Theobald, Simon Thorp.
