Mr Foote's Other Leg
Published by Nick Hern Books
Large Mixed Cast
In Georgian London no one is more famous than Samuel Foote
Actor, satirist, impressionist, comedian, friend of David Garrick and Dr Johnson, he has become a celebrity in an age obsessed with fame
He even has the ear of the King
But Foote finds himself at the sharp end of attacks from the press
And under the surgeon's knife!
Adored by many, despised by some, he's now at the centre of a media storm
And there's only one question on everyone's lips ...
Does fame make you mad?
Premiered at London's Hampstead Theatre in September 2015, it is the fastest selling play in the theatre's history
