The Libertine by Stephen Jeffreys

Manchester School of Theatre (3 yr. Acting)

David Shirley

Performances take place at the Capitol Theatre - Manchester, M15 6BG

The Libertine tells the story of the Earl of Rochester, friend and confidant of Charles II and the most notorious rake of his age. He was an anti-monarchist Royalist, an atheist who converted to Christianity and a lyric poet who reveled in pornography. The play centres on the moment his cynicism is confounded when he falls in love in earnest.

Self-consciously theatrical, bawdy and highly thought provoking, this play contemplates the vibrancy and decadence of the Restoration age.
