About The Play

Mr Foote's Other Leg is a 2015 stage adaptation of Mr Foote's Other Leg: Comedy, tragedy and murder in Georgian London, a 2012 biography of the 18th century actor Samuel Foote.

The play's prelude is an attempt to steal Foote's amputated leg from the Hunterian Collection, but it mainly covers the period from Foote's tutelage under Charles Macklin in the 1740s until his involvement in the controversy surrounding Elizabeth Chudleigh in 1774-76.


To be announced following auditions in August 2017.
