NT Live - The Beaux' Stratagem (Encore)

Tell a friend:

10th September 2015 - 7pm

Venue: Cope Auditorium, Loughborough University

Simon Godwin (Man and Superman) directs George Farquhar's wild comedy of love and cash.

The ‘Beaux’: Mr Aimwell and Mr Archer, two charming, dissolute young men who have blown their fortunes in giddy London. Shamed and debt-ridden, they flee to provincial Lichfield. Their ‘Stratagem’: to marry for money.

Lodged at the local inn, posing as master and servant, they encounter a teeming variety of human obstacles. But their greatest obstacle is love - when the Beaux meet their match in Dorinda and Mrs Sullen they are most at risk, for in love they might be truly discovered.
