The Ruling Class
    By Peter Barnes

    19:45, Tue 14th – Sat 18th November 2017 at ADC Theatre
    Michaelmas Week 6

    When the 13th Earl of Gurney dies, it falls to his son Jack to run the estate. It’s a shame, then, that Jack is a clinically insane religious fanatic who calls himself the God of Love. And with drunk butlers, scheming relatives, and German psychoanalysts all blundering around the place, it’s no wonder nothing’s getting done! But will their attempts to cure Jack go to plan? Is it possible that the God of Love has a dark side?

    From auto-erotic asphyxiation to a showdown with Electric Jesus, Peter Barnes’ black comedy is a wildly funny romp through the world of the the ruling class.
