When noble heroine Miss Phoebe Virtue receives worrisome news on Instagram that her twin brother Jack may be endangering his reputation in London Town, she decides she must visit herself, and investigate...

Set in contemporary, post-pandemic London, full of illicit sex, political hypocrisy and the machinations of a fame-hungry elite, Scandaltown is a comedy for the new Restoration of the theatres.


"Extremely funny... Bartlett's writing is always clever and lively, and he hits his targets."

- WhatsOnStage

"A rambunctious, modern-day Restoration comedy... a springtime pantomime with knowing humour, smut, silliness and arch references to the hypocrisies of the state... joyfully silly stuff."

- Guardian

"Laugh-out-loud funny... the mashup of Restoration cadences and modern argot is spot on."

- Evening Standard
