"The Ruling Class" Onstage at Zellerbach 

When: March 8-17 2013
By Peter Barnes Directed by Christopher Herold

Jack Gurney just inherited his father’s lordship, money, and seat in the British Parliament. Jack should be using his power to advance his family’s position and finances, but there’s a problem. He believes he’s the “God of Love” and should be helping the poor with his money.

Jack’s aristocratic family resorts to brutal tactics to correct his liberalism, with hilarious and terrifying results. Peter Barnes’ 1968 black comedy stunningly parallels and predicts today’s clash of class and partisan politics.

A post-show discussion with the cast will follow the Matinee on March 10.
