The fall semester Shiley Theatre production, directed by Terry Glaser, will be The Beaux' Stratagem, George Farquhar's racy Restoration-era comedy about roguish fortune hunters, audacious bandits, and passionate women engaging in a deliciously witty battle of the sexes. One of the most popular English comedies since it was written in 1707, The Beaux' Stratagem is filled with fun and frolic, disguises and deceptions, rough-and-tumble romance, perilous dangers and daring rescues. Our selected adaptation by Thornton Wilder and Ken Ludwig, is thoroughly accessible to modern audiences while faithfully recreating the Restoration period with fabulously funny characters, sparkling wordplay and dashing swordplay – all celebrating the sheer joy of living.
