The Rules

Producers say: ‘With Brexit on the horizon, Trump in the White House and Danny Dyer related to royalty, the rules of life have been shredded, set on fire and trodden on. This show aims to re-write some new ones.’ The tester episode is to be recorded on Thursday May 24 at RADA Studios, off Tottenham Court Road, Central London. Free tickets are available here.
