Jermyn Street Theatre – Beau Brummell - An Elegant Madness

It is the winter of 1819. The most stylish man of his day (to whom a statue will later be raised in Jermyn Street) lives in exile in a madhouse in Calais. The mind of George Bryan Brummell, known as The Beau, revels in past glories when he dominated the worlds of fashion, wit and dress. He is convinced that his old friend and patron the Prince of Wales (now King George IV) will visit him and restore his position in society. Today, the King is coming to Calais! Beau’s valet, however, fired by revolutionary zeal, has other plans for the British monarch…

Combining the grandeur of King Lear with the regency farce of Blackadder III, this superb black comedy has been described as “Waiting for Godot for the fashion conscious”.
