I’d like to draw your attention to two new historical plays which are showing in London, but on quite short runs.
The Four Stages of Cruelty, presented by the Simple8 Theatre Company is based in 1751 and inspired by Hogarth engravings. It runs until 24 June. £15. More info and tickets here.
The King’s Face covers a little-known historical incident in 1403 when Henry V, then Prince Harry, was severely wounded in the face by an arrow. The play tells the story of how his surgeon John Bradmore saves the prince’s life and how their relationship develops during the healing process. Until 3 July.
£12, down to £8 for groups. More info and tickets here.
