“But I do have a job. I’m a professional viscount”
Things aren’t looking good for Theodore “Tug” Bungay.
His mother, Lady Agrippina, has a plan to cut off his funds. His fed-up fiancée wants to drag him up the aisle. An oligarch is eyeing up his beloved Northumberland castle. Is Tug’s dissolute life about to change completely? Or will he get to carry on doing exactly as he pleases without ever facing any consequences?
Mates in Chelsea, the new comedy by Rory Mullarkey, takes a farcical look at the lavish lives of the London elite who – somehow – remain our country’s ruling class.
Directed by Royal Court Associate Director Sam Pritchard, this riotous new play takes inspiration from Wilde and Wodehouse.
The role of Mrs Hanratty in Mates in Chelsea will now be played by Claire Lams.
