THE WAY OF THE WORLD

Family, money, desire: the rules of the game, the way of the world.

Lady Wishfort’s sprawling, dysfunctional family are riven by desire – there’s everything to lose and six thousand pounds to gain. Congreve’s glorious ensemble of characters battle it out in this exposing, satirical comedy where everyone needs to win just to get by.

In mid-April 2018, we were deeply shocked and saddened by the tragic loss of Alex Beckett.

Alex was a much-loved member of The Way of the World cast, playing Waitwell, and began his career in The Hotel in Amsterdam at the Donmar. He was a friend, an inspiration and a shining talent.

Together, we and the company dedicated this joyful production to the memory of this brilliant, funny and gifted man.

Following Alex's death, Robin Pearce kindly stepped in to play the role of Waitwell.
