When Miss Phoebe Virtue receives worrisome news on Instagram that her twin brother Jack may be endangering his reputation, she decides she must investigate ...

Set in contemporary, post-pandemic London, full of illicit sex, political hypocrisy and the machinations of a fame-hungry elite, Scandaltown is a satirical comedy for the new Restoration of the theatres


"A rambunctious, modern-day Restoration comedy... a springtime pantomime with knowing humour, smut, silliness and arch references to the hypocrisies of the state... joyfully silly stuff" ~ Guardian

"Laugh-out-loud funny... the mashup of Restoration cadences and modern argot is spot on" ~ Evening Standard

"Extremely funny... Bartlett's writing is always clever and lively, and he hits his targets" ~ WhatsOnStage

"A lot of fun... Bartlett has a knack for verse, and turns out Restoration-inspired insults for his characters to chuck at each other... really smart... full of nice gags" ~ Time Out
