A Bristol Old Vic and Lamplighter Drama production
Adapted for the stage by April de Angelis
From the novel by John Cleland
Starring Caroline Quentin

Based on John Cleland's (in)famous novel, which was published in 1748 but banned from sale soon afterwards, this adaptation by April de Angelis (current National Theatre Writer in Residence) charts Fanny Hill's fall into prostitution and rise to notoriety.

More socially and politically relevant now than ever before, The Life and Times of Fanny Hill is a darkly comic exploration of fulfilment and pleasure, offering a witty, irreverent perspective on the reality behind Fanny Hill's story.

The ensemble of six actors will be led by acclaimed comedy actress Caroline Quentin (Men Behaving Badly, Jonathan Creek) in a production by emerging director, Michael Oakley (Chichester Festival Theatre, JMK Award for Young Directors).
