Fired from his skiffle band, Francis Henshall becomes minder to Roscoe Crabbe, a small time East End hood, now in Brighton to collect £6,000 from his fiancee’s dad. But Roscoe is really his sister Rachel posing as her own dead brother, who’s been killed by her boyfriend Stanley Stubbers. Holed up at The Cricketers’ Arms, the permanently ravenous Francis spots the chance of an extra meal ticket and takes a second job with one Stanley Stubbers, who is hiding from the police and waiting to be re-united with Rachel. To prevent discovery, Francis must keep his two guvnors apart. Simple. Based on Carlo Goldoni’s classic Italian comedy The Servant of Two Masters, in this new English version by prizewinning playwright Richard Bean, sex, food and money are high on the agenda. Winner of the both 2011 Evening Standard Theatre Best New Play & Critic's Circle Best New Play awards.

England People Very Nice ‘A very funny but outrageous comedy...makes you laugh then wonder whether you should have.’ Financial Times The Big Fellah ‘Bean’s play is very funny, full of sharp contrasts between grim hilarity and gut-wrenching reversals.’ The Stage (Shortlisted for the Writers’ Guild of Great Britain Best Theatre Play 2011) The Heretic ‘delicious... Above all, though, it is Bean’s writing that scintillates. Pulsing with shrewd humour, it’s risqué and linguistically rich. There are some blissfully surreal touches... The Heretic is clever, imaginative and entertaining theatre.’ Evening Standard Winner of the 2011 Evening Standard Theatre Best Play Award.

Will Britain leave the EU? In recent months, commentators have begun to talk seriously about the possibility of 'Brexit' - British Exit from the EU. In this book, former Europe minister Denis MacShane looks at the history of Britain's fraught relationship with Europe and shows how the possibility of Brexit has become increasingly more likely. He looks at the key personalities who shaped our European policy - from Churchill to Heath and Wilson to Thatcher, Blair and Cameron - and the key issues of immigration, the economy and media influence which have heightened Eurosceptic feeling in the UK. Touching on one of the biggest political issues of our times, this book will be essential reading as Britain makes its choice on Europe.

April 1642. Sir John Hotham, Governor of Hull, Member for Beverley and owner of most of East Yorkshire 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. And that’s to say nothing of his problems at home – a lovesick daughter, a ghost obsessed with the chinaware, sexually arousing furniture and a wife intent on escape. We join Sir John on the worst day of his life, as he is caught between two choices: Honour or Advantage. The Hypocrite was co-produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company, Hull Truck Theatre and Hull UK City of Culture 2017. It was first performed at Hull Truck Theatre on 24 February 2017. The production transferred to the Swan Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon on 31 March 2017.

In its conventional meaning, masquerade refers to a festive gathering of people wearing masks and elegant costumes. But traditional forms of masquerade have evolved over the past century to include the representation of alternate identities in the media and venues of popular culture, including television, film, the internet, theater, museums, sports arenas, popular magazines and a range of community celebrations, reenactments and conventions. This collection of fresh essays examine the art and function of masquerade from a broad range of perspectives. From African slave masquerade in New World iconography, to the familiar Guy Fawkes masks of the Occupy movement, to the branded identities created by celebrities like Madonna, Beyonce and Lady Gaga, the essays show how masquerade permeates modern life.
