An exhilarating and uproarious farce by award-winning playwright Richard Bean (One Man, Two Guvnors.)
April 1642. Sir John Hotham loves his power, his money, his maid and the fact that his head hasn’t been removed from his shoulders by an axe.  He is Governor of Hull, and he should be on the side of Parliament.  He is supposed to keep King Charles out of the city, but what if Charles wins?  With rebellion stirring in his city and a siege outside its walls, Hotham must keep both sides happy and his other assets intact.  The play was a hit for the RSC/Hull Truck last year, celebrating Hull as City of Culture, 2017.
