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.

James Macdonald returns to direct at the Donmar, following the mesmerising Roots in 2013. 

 

Performances of The Way of the World have resumed with Robin Pearce in the role of Waitwell.

Together, we and The Way of the World company dedicate this production to the memory of Alex Beckett.
