The Cane
Red Stitch Actors Theatre presents
The Cane

7 Apr 2021 to 9 May 2021

Ravenhill’s darkly humorous meditation on institutionalised violence examines how we judge the past, with its different values, by the standards of the present.

Edward, the last bastion of an era that practised corporal punishment, is besieged by a mob of angry students and progressive values espoused by the new ‘Academy’ system of schooling. His wife and possibly duplicitous daughter are engaged to save his legacy.

A compelling new play… Breathtakingly savage.

Taut, troubling…vintage Ravenhill.
