A riotously funny satirical farce in the tradition of 'Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead' and 'Shakespeare in Love', from the author of 'The Libertine'.
Elizabeth I is tottering at death's door. Conspirators are everywhere. Alternative comedian Lucius Bodkin becomes unwittingly involved in the political skullduggery and jiggery-pokery surrounding the ailing queen. He thinks he'll hit the big time - but he's reckoned without the Tudor backstabbers and the City wide boys.
The Clink could pass itself off as a long-lost Elizabethan comedy. In fact it is a brilliant political satire offering many sharp parallels with our own times, when art must be sponsored, but to be sponsored it must be 'safe'.
Presented by Richmond Amateur Dramatic Society by arrangement with Nick Hern Books.
