It's 1737, and England is on edge... Slick Filth by Erato

The book is typeset in historical fonts, making you feel like you've been pulled back in time to watch the drama unfold first-hand.



Description:

Published: February 14th, 2020

It's 1737, and England is on edge: someone has tried to assassinate the King at the theatre, and every stageplay is a satire of the royal family. Enter Prime Minister Robert Walpole with a cunning scheme that will grant him power to censor anything that goes on stage -- by writing the filthiest play ever conceived. 

Get ready for sex, castratos and cannibalism, because the Prime Minister is ready to shock the city!

Based on true events, Slick Filth includes a recreation of the notorious play The Golden Rump, which so offended Parliament that new censorship laws were enacted for the first time in England's history.

The book is typeset in historical fonts, making you feel like you've been pulled back in time to watch the drama unfold first-hand.
