The Way Of The WorldJames Macdonald returns to the Donmar to direct Linda Bassett as Lady Wishfort in William Congreve's biting satirical comedy about a fractured, dysfunctional family willing to sacrifice everything - including their morals - for the sake of six thousand pounds. This new production of Restoration comedy, The Way of the World, reunites Macdonald with actress Linda Bassett (a familiar face from her film and TV roles in East in East and Call the Midwife) who returns to the Donmar after giving "a marvel of a performance" (The Guardian) in 2013's Roots.

 

About The Donmar Warehouse

Housed in an impressive red-brick industrial building - at various times a brewery, a banana warehouse and a film studio - this tiny repertory theatre is one of the great success stories of the 1990s. Created as a studio space for the RSC in 1977, it became a shabby but popular fringe theatre in the 1980s, a testing ground for producers with big ideas but little money.
