About The Play - set in London in 1789 , "Babi" is probably the Rudes funniest play and is a flat out farce in the manner of Goldoni. This play however goes back to the much more satirical farces of the comedia del'arte and savages over-sexuality,greed and the lack of self knowledge.
"Side splitting hilarity leading to a shocking and explosive ending" The Independent on Sunday
