The name Sheen is synonymous with theatre at its best. For proof, check out the latest production by Newport Playgoers – it’s directed by John Sheen, father of musical theatre star Caroline Sheen and uncle of award-winning actor, Michael Sheen.
John brings years of expertise to his production of ‘The Hypochondriac’, the classic Molière farce that has been updated by Liverpool poet Roger McGough.
“Following a successful run at the Dolman Theatre we’re now presenting this modern take on Molière’s very funny comedy at the famous open air Minack Theatre on the cliffs in Porthcurno, Cornwall,” said John.
“The play is a lavish costume romp packed with fakes – a wealthy hypochondriac who pretends to be dead, a wife who pretends to love her husband and doctors who pretend to understand medicine. I think we’ve concocted the perfect remedy for all the doom and gloom that’s around these days.”
