The London Vertigo is Brian Friel’s adaptation of a play by Charles Macklin (1690?-1797), the Donegal-born author whose plays Love à la Mode and The Man of the World enjoyed abundant success in London and Dublin.

In his introduction Brian Friel considers ‘a geography of humour’ and the play, a satirical, amusing look at Irish Anglophiles, suggests the delusion of the characters’ self-metamorphosis and echoes some of Friel’s own abiding interests.

The London Vertigo represents an act of warmhearted companionship between neighbouring playwrights.
