Too Clever By Half by Alexander Ostrovsky in a ver

Royal Central School of Speech and Drama (3 yr. Musical Theatre / all Stage Management)

Martin Parr

Performances take place at the The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, NW3 3HY

Welcome to a dog-eat-dog world where a crafty, grasping and cut-throat rogues gallery of charlatans and hypocritical schemers vie to outdo one another in a dazzling tour de force of duplicity and unscrupulous ambition.

Written in the mid-19th century by the most prolific Russian social satirist Ostrovsky, this perennially fresh and hilarious comedy of bad manners focuses on our rogue-hero Gloumov as he claws his way from shabby obscurity to the top of the social pile, using whatever means he can and stepping on whoever is in his way in order to get there.
