"In short this is one of the finest productions that OTC has yet mounted "
"A novel and thrilling way to spend a Saturday night, the OTC fully deserved the large crowd it attracted."
The Rake's Progress is at once a touching love story and a terrifying dance with the devil,charting the rise and fall of handsome young Tom Rakewell(Ian Paton) in the company of faithful Anne Truelove(Louise Walsh) bearded Baba the Turk(Frances McCafferty) and Old Nick Himself(Sam McElroy).
Conducted by Richard Farnes and the production will be directed by James Conway with designs by Joe Vanek and lighting by Paul Keagan.
