Ridiculous Theatre: Scourge of Human Folly

Essays and Opinions

By Charles Ludlam Edited by Steven Samuels

Paperback £18.99

The collected ‘essays and opinions’ of the founder, director, playwright and star of New York’s famous Ridiculous Theatre.

The late Charles Ludlam ransacked theatrical and literary history in an evolutionary quest for a modern art of stage comedy. His more than 30 plays - most famously Bluebeard, Camille, Galas and The Mystery of Irma Vep, all available from Nick Hern Books in The Mystery of Irma Vep and other plays - are among the funniest, most erudite and anarchic in the modern repertoire.
