About this show

Habeas Corpus is set as England's Swingin' '60s, yielding the field to the permissive '70s. A kind of anarchic comedy had taken hold of British theatre, television and film at the time, and Alan Bennett was among its chief architects. This show features a doctor who lusts after a patient who in turn prefers the doctor's son while the doctor's wife has moved on to the president of the British Medical Association. And just to keep them all spinning, Brighton by the Sea gets a naughty vicar. Bill Rauch directs.
