A popular street performer and a classical writer square off in American playwright David Hirson’s thoughtful comedy La Bete. The Olivier Award-winning Best Play, written in 1990, pits high-brow against low-brow in 17th Century France when the two artists vie for a royal endorsement. In our age of sensationalism and reality television, what begins as a rollicking comedy soon challenges audiences to decide for themselves: can culture be populist?
