Time Out’s Top Critics’ Choice and Show of the Week
Following its sell out run at the White Bear, enjoy this beguiling and hilarious pageant of love, madness and mistaken identity, Madness in Valencia.
Floriano kills a Prince and flees. Erifila escapes an abhorrent arranged marriage. Uncertain of their futures they take refuge in Valencia’s famed asylum. Locked up with fools and physicians they become entangled in the convolutions of a glorious farce.
'What Simon Evans' breathlessly pacy production illustrates is just how much enlivening fun can be had with a classic… a rare delight' - TimeOut
