Lent Week 7
‘The goldest throne in the world is still sat on by an arse’ said Montaigne, and the Earl of Rochester's SODOM examines this fundamental of fundaments with no little rectitude. The base instincts which govern our governors are expressed here through the nihilism of a poet who finds his only reality in sexuality. Relocated from Restoration decadence to political sleaze, Lewinsky dresses and Prescott leers, with songs, dances and Signior Dildo, this is what every play should be, this is to Shakespeare what Hollyoaks Later is to Hollyoaks.
