Look Out, Here Comes Trouble!

By Mary O'Malley


Look Out, Here Comes Trouble! is a comedy set in a London mental hospital.  It was first performed at the Donmar Warehouse Theatre, London, on 16 November 1978.

The play was published by Amber Lane Press.

This was the first RSC season at the Warehouse – built in order to duplicate, on a slightly larger scale, the Other Place Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon.  The statement at the top of the cast list reads: ‘The Warehouse is the Royal Shakespeare Company’s new London small auditorium. It has been specially built in the Donmar Theatre, 41 Earlham Street, Seven Dials, Covent Garden.’
