The Beaux' Stratagem

The fall semester Shiley production, directed by Terry Glaser, will be "The Beaux' Stratagem," George Farquhar's racy Restoration 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. The adaptation we will be using, by Thornton Wilder and Ken Ludwig, is thoroughly accessible to modern audiences while faithfully recreating the Restoration world with fabulously funny characters, sparkling wordplay, and dashing swordplay -- all celebrating the sheer joy of living.
