Barrie Keefe’s A Mad World My Masters is a play on the Grand Comic scale of the past, set enthusiastically in 1977, the year of the Queen’s Silver Jubilee. The plotting leads a twisted course through a drunken doctor’s office, to a striptease act by an Angela Rippon look-alike, to a last-act rendezvous in the gardens of Buckingham Palace. Suggested by Thomas Middleton’s 1608 comedy of the same name, it has the gusto, delight in intrigue, and feeling for low-life exuberance of a Jacobean play.
