This production contains adult themes and some strong language.  Unsuitable for children.

One grand house is occupied by two families both teetering on the edge of change:

1799 - On the eve of a new century, the house buzzes with scientific experiments, furtive romance and farcical amateur dramatics; 1999 - In a world of scientific chaos, cloning and genetic engineering, the cellar of the same house reveals a dark secret buried for 200 years.


 This amateur production of "An Experiment with an Air Pump" is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd on behalf of Samuel French Ltd
