Haggard by Eric Chappell

Haggard is best described as a bawdy romp and has had the cast in stitches from the get-go! Perpetually hard-up, lecherous, conceited, dishonest and drunk, the eighteenth-century Squire Amos Haggard was first conceived by Michael Green and subsequently brought to television screens in Eric Chappell’s much-loved ITV series in the 1990s.  In Chappell’s stage adaptation, the anti-hero disguises himself as the notorious bar brawler ‘One-Eyed Will’, seduces a member of the aristocracy, poisons himself, survives an encounter with ‘Death’, fights a duel and ends up in prison waiting to be hanged! His son Roderick and servant Grunge are his not-so-faithful companions.
