Book Now The Knowledge
Set against the backdrop of the harsh economic times of 1979, The Knowledge is based on the iconic 1979 TV film comedy, written by Jack Rosenthal, and follows the hilarious struggles of four Londoners as they attempt to better themselves by attempting the fearsome “Knowledge” - the process of becoming a London black cab taxi driver. Standing between them and the coveted Green Badge is the eccentric Mr. Burgess, the examiner. Also known as “The Vampire”, he is on an obsessive mission to maintain standards.”

Acclaimed actress and writer Maureen Lipman is to direct this world stage premiere.

The rest of the creative team is made up by:  Nicolai Hart-Hansen (Set Design), Jonathan Lipman (Costume Design), Andrew Johnson (Sound Design).

Casting will be announced shortly.
