“Please don’t be charmed, he’s not a lovable rogue...” Loosely based on Molière’s tragicomedy 'Don Juan', this savagely funny and filthy modern update transports the action to contemporary London and follows the final adventures of its debauched protagonist – a cruel seducer who lives only for pleasure.
