By Joe Orton

Joe Orton's brilliantly artistic and staggeringly daring first play.

Fred and Madge are a regular couple. Or so we predict till a director and an viewers member begin interrupting and remodeling this play inside of a play.

Exhilaratingly subversive, the play contains the destruction of the pageant corridor, specialist insulters purpose on purging society with laughter and a dystopian England overgrown with marigolds. filled with biting satire and sardonic wit, it mingles astutely saw social realism with fantasy: Fred's activity is to push boulders up a hill, and Madge's is to sieve water.

Written in 1959, Fred & Madge ultimately obtained its top-rated in 2014 on the desire Theatre, London.
