The Way of The World

29TH MARCH - 26TH MAY 2018
Design by Anna Fleischle

All Scene All Props had the pleasure of working with Anna Fleischle again on THE WAY OF THE WORLD for the Donmar Warehouse. 

Family, money, desire: the rules of the game, the way of the world.

Lady Wishfort's sprawling, dysfunctional family are riven by desire - there's everything to lose and six thousand pounds to gain. 

William Congreve's glorious ensemble of characters battle it out in this exposing, satirical comedy where everyone needs to win just to get by. 

James Macdonald returns to direct at the Donmar, following the mesmerising Roots in 2013. Lighting by Peter Mumford and Sound by Max Pappenheim.

Cast includes:  Haydn Gwynne, Fisayo Akinade, Alex Beckett, Gabrielle Brooks, Phoebe Frances Brown, Sarah Hadland, Jenny Jules, Simon Manyonda, Caroline Martin, Tom Mison, Justine Mitchell, Christian Patterson, Geoffrey Streatfeild, Nathan Welsh. 

THE WAY OF THE WORLD runs at the Donmar Warehouse from Thursday 29th March until Saturday 26th May 2018. For more information and to book tickets, click here.

Reviews:

The Guardian: **** 4 stars
"...[a] sparkling restoration of Congreve's comic gem."

The Independent:
"This is an immensley stylish account of the play - presented in period (the excellent design is by Anna Fleischle) and its elaborate dialogue spoken with a wonderful throwaway poise and penetration."

"A comic masterpiece... this is the funniest version of the play I've seen."

WhatsOnStage: **** 4 stars
"[the characters are] placed in a world that is both recognisable and historical. This is obvious from the very first when, in Anna Fleischle's stunning designs, a gauze curtain bearing the translucent shape of a house rises to reveal a paneled room, where two men play cards, wearing wigs and high heels, with their richly embroided coats slung over their chairs."

Financial Times: **** 4 stars
"[a] glittering comedy."

"James Macdonald’s lucid, illuminating and immensely handsome production fences its way through the thickets, with excellent, precise performances finding the troubled human hearts beneath the extravagant frocks and frock coats and the no less elaborate phrases."
