The Ruling Class

a Philadelphia premiere by Peter Barnes directed by Jiri Zizka

April 9 – May 11, 1997

When the widowed 13th Earl of Gurney dies abruptly — in a truly compromising position — the surviving Gurneys conspire to unseat his unlikely heir and reclaim their ancestral estate. Playwright Peter Barnes brings his peer-less sense of humor to this biting satire on the British aristocracy.
