Habeas Corpus
    By Alan Bennett

    20:00, Wed 26th – Thu 27th November 2008 at Chadwick Room, Selwyn College
    Michaelmas Week 7

    "A witty farce by one of the country's most loved writers. GP Arthur Wicksteed is no stranger to the naked body (except his wife's). As he lustfully pursues a gorgeous new patient his frustrated wife and hypochondriac son conduct affairs of their own. Connie, Arthur's spinster sister, thinks certain 'enhancements' might better her chances with the opposite sex. If only Shanks, the salesman of such 'enhancements', knew who it was he's meant to be examining. And why can't the suicidal Mr Purdue just get on with it? Bennett punctures the sexy silliness with acute and poignant observations whilst never allowing the comedy to become sentimental or didactic."
