The Beaux’ Strategem
Time: Various dates/times in Feb.
Description: THE BEAUX’ STRATEGEM:The original version of The Beaux’ Stratagem, written by George Farquhar, was first performed in London in 1709. It was later adapted by Thornton Wilder in 1939, though it was not finished. That opportunity, passed on from Wilder’s estate, went to Ken Ludwig (Lend Me a Tenor), who completed work on it in time for the new version’s debut in 2006.
Three centuries in the making, the play is a raucous romp through the minefields of love, money and marriage. It is an evening full of careful scheming, double dealing and a good bit of old-time swashbuckling bravado, proving that when it comes to matters of the heart anything can happen no matter how carefully planned.
