On the Razzle

On The Razzle – ADC freshers show produced and directed by John’s freshers!! Come and support them!
Tuesday 13th – Saturday 17th November, 7.45pm, Main Stage @ ADC

“One false move and we’ll have a farce on our hands.”

Every mid-level employee longs for his or her break from the humdrum this and that of everyday life- especially in turn-of-the-century Austria. When rich merchant Herr Zangler jaunts off to Vienna to woo his new mistress, his ward elopes with her penniless suitor and his two assistants decide that this is the time for a big adventure and go on “the razzle.” Where are they all headed? To the same place of course- in haste, in heat, and in cognito.

The Telegraph describes On the Razzle as ‘an unremitting firework display of puns, crossword puzzle tricks and sly sexual innuendos.” This is still the work of Tom Stoppard, but a wrier and far more tongue-in-cheek. Based on Viennese playwright Johann Nestroy’s original play, “Einen Jux Will Er Sich Machen” (“He’s Out for a Fling”), Stoppard’s play is every inch an homage to the time-honored farce attributed to artists as diverse as Moliere and John Cleese.  Come see the On the Razzle production that cheekily promises a mad caper of grand proportions and mistaken identity, blanketed entirely in Scottish tartan.
