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.
Following their collaboration on the mesmerising Roots in 2013, James Macdonald returns to the Donmar to direct Linda Bassett in the role of Lady Wishfort.

Alongside every Donmar production, we run Open Workshops designed to give members of the public of all ages a unique insight into the process of theatre-making. These Open Workshops are not targeted at professional actors or theatre-makers, but at members of our audience interested in learning more about the Donmar’s rehearsal process.
Join us for a The Way of the World Open Workshop on:
Saturday 12 May 2018, 11.00am-1.00pm
