Directed by Jonathon Sawdon, best known for his performances for the BSS as Hamlet and Henry V. Jonathon writes that this play is about:
“Corruption, money, sex! Deception, greed, gluttony, money, sex! Cruelty, infidelity, betrayal, money, sex! Pepentance, marnage, money and er…sex!
A Chaste Maid In Cheapside, containing “much humour though very little chastity” is Thomas Middleton’s darkly comic masterpiece. Written c. 1613, though long neglected until the 2Oth century, this Jacobean satire audaciously intertwines ribaldry and profanity to leave you laughing and squirming in equal measure.”

Join the BSS for a night of “bed and bawd”!
