As part of Brighton Fringe 2017, the Foundry Group supported by The Lantern Theatre is proud to present a double bill of masterly short plays by W. S. Gilbert – ‘Sweethearts’, a cynical comic masterpiece dating from 1874 but with timeless observations on the sexes, and ‘The Hooligan’, an unflinching, tragic, yet blackly comic study of a condemned man’s final minutes that was a sensation at its debut in 1911.

Performed by LLoyd Ryan-Thomas (Nominee – Best Actor, Brighton Festival Awards 2014), Emma Wingrove (‘Bite-Size Breakfast’), Nick Bartlett (‘Gangs of New York’) and David Mounfield (‘Count Arthur Strong’s Radio Show’). Directed by Brian Mitchell (Argus Angel winner 2014).

At The Lantern Theatre, Brighton
May 7th – 8th, 8.30pm.
