Directed by Artistic Director, Adam Bambrough, this piece of new writing also marks the first ever professional production by writer Christine Foster. Set in 1665 as the great plague sweeps through London, Four Thieves’ Vinegar explores the behaviour of ordinary people in times of disaster and examines which elements of the human spirit remain indestructible, be it three hundred and fifty years ago, or today.
