The Lady's Not For Burning
by Christopher Fry
Directed by Tony Award-Winner Joseph Hardy (Child's Play)
Featuring Lynn Redgrave and Richard Easton

In a world of hypocrisy, post-war superstition and witch-hunting, a man 
returns from war to find love and redemption in spite of his 
circumstances, all in a hilariously chaotic mix of characters wrapped up 
in a poetic tangle of fun.
