RSC Gunpowder Season – explosive Elizabethan and Jacobean dramas of dissent, staged by the RSC in 2005.

A black comedy about a question that haunts us today - what to do about an ageing population.

The Old Law is passed. At the ages of eighty and sixty respectively, all men and women are to be put to death as they are of no further use to society. A play full of cross-generational fireworks, A New Way to Please You tackles underlying questions about the law and ageing.
