Another laugh fest by David Ives (Venus in Fur and The School for Lies) based on Jean-Francois Regnard’s comic masterpiece and adapted entirely in hilarious rhyming verse, The Heir Apparent takes comedy to new heights with this story of mistaken identities. A young man desperately wants to marry but first he needs to secure an inheritance from his miserable old uncle. It won’t be easy. Can this young man’s resourceful servant save the day with his powers of disguise and his quick wit?
