The Critic
    By Richard Brindsley Sheridan

    19:00, Fri 27th November 2009 - Sun 29th November 2009 at Fitzwilliam College Auditorium
    Michaelmas Week 7 to Week 8

    Considered by Sheridan to contain his finest work, The Critic is a satire which savages the social pretensions of theatre and theatre critics. Set as a play in which the audience watches the critics watching an excuse for a play, none involved are left entirely safe from mockery.
