The Hypocrite

Richard Bean

Riotous new comedy from award-winning playwright Richard Bean - this brand new co-production was directed by Phillip Breen and played in Hull and Stratford in 2017.

April 1642. Sir John Hotham, Governor of Hull, is charged by Parliament to secure the arsenal at Hull and deny entry to King Charles I. If only it were that simple. With a Royalist siege outside the city walls and the rebellion of the mob within, Civil War seems inevitable and losing his head more than probable.

The Hypocrite is a riotous new comedy from award-winning playwright Richard Bean (One Man, Two Guvnors). Transferring direct from Hull to Stratford-upon-Avon this brand new co-production was directed by Phillip Breen.
