Dion Boucicault, the Irish genius of London theatre in the age of Dickens, wrote the brilliantly funny London Assurance in 1841 and thereby created – in Sir Harcourt and Lady Spanker – two of the great comic roles of the English stage, played at the NT by Simon Russell Beale and Fiona Shaw. This stage revival has been brilliantly adapted by the prolific and award-winning playwright Richard Bean.

'The dialogue is both funny and flavorsome, helped along here by a few excellent new jokes added by Richard Bean.' Daily Telegraph

'Tickled up with new jokes by farmer’s son and stand-up turned-playwright Richard Bean, both the countryside and play are even funnier than when this play was written in 1841.'  Mail on Sunday
