Tickets £8.50 / £6.50 concessions

Banned for over 20 years, Arthur Schnitzler’s La Ronde is a sophisticated, coolly savage and ironically humorous fairground ride through human sexuality.  Set in 19th century Paris, La Ronde charts the love lives of a series of inter-related characters whose complex and frequently very brief relationships eventually join them all together.  La Ronde’s original production in 1903 caused one of the greatest scandals in the history of German theatre, complete with obscenity trials, physical battles and right-wing canvassing to have the play withdrawn.

Includes themes and scenes of an adult nature. Recommended age limit 16+.
