The Heretic

"Richard Bean’s treatment of this divisive topic proves fascinating stuff" MEN

"This ensemble cast is one of the best in recent memory… Thoughtful, considered, and most importantly entertaining" The Public Reviews

"a lesson in theatre comedy, with laughs almost too numerous for the audience’s health" Oldham Evening Chronicle

"One of the wittiest, cleverest black comedies I’ve seen for a long time" Sale and Altrincham Messenger

Dr Diane Cassell is a leading light in the Earth Sciences department of a major Northern university, and a climate change skeptic. And when your daughter is an anorexic eco-warrior and your boss thinks global warming is a cash cow, that’s bound to lead to trouble. Richard Bean's riotous black comedy dares to question prevailing beliefs and separate the science from the spin.

Awarded the 2011 Evening Standard Award for Best Play, Bean’s hugely successful work also includes the National Theatre smash hit One Man, Two Guvnors. This is the regional première of a wonderfully funny play about lonely hearts, brilliant minds and blowing yourself up on Top Gear.
