Habeas Corpus Tickets

    Hang on to your seats as you ride this satirical rollercoaster, full of mistaken identities and carnal encounters!

    Why Watch Habeus Corpus

    Arriving at the turn of the new year for a three-month residency at Menier Chocolate Factory, this comedic farce follows the members of the Wicksteed living in 1960s Hove. Replete with mistaken identities and carnal encounters, the play explores the themes of family values, friends, and hedonistic pursuits.

    Directed by the talented Patrick Marber (Travesties and Leopoldstadt), the play has been written down by the multi-award-winning playwright Alan Bennett. Cast members include Kirsty Besterman, Jasper Britton, and Matthew Cottle who are joined by Ria Jones, Caroline Langrishe, Catherine Russell, and Abdul Salis. Book your tickets now for this wickedly wonderful farce that will leave you in splits.
