About the Show
The Tank presents this world premiere where, in a corridor haunted by wronged maidservants, a stable boy (Ruffles) considers the ways he is becoming bad because of the things his new job asks him to do.
As a progression of rakes, profligates, and libertines drink more liqueurs and vomit in the decorative urns, one rake reflects on his dawning consciousness that his actions harm others. "Ruffles, or, a Progression of Rakes" is a meditation on power, consent and how to be a person, that is, a good person.
