Description of Event:
Simon Goodwin (Man and Superman) directs George Farquhar’s wild comedy of love and cash with Jamie Beamish (The Borgias, Anna Karenina) and Pippa Bennett-Warner (Doctor Who, The Royals).

The “Beaus”: 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 province Litchfield. The “Strategem”: to marry for money!

Lodged at the local inn, posing as master and servant, they encounter a teeming variety of human obstacles: a crooked landlord, a fearsome highwayman, a fervent French Count, a maid on the make, a drunken husband, a furious butler, a natural healer, and a strange, turbulent priest.

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.

Satellite broadcast from London’s National Theatre.
