NT Live: The Beaux’ Stratagem
Thursday September 3
Simon Godwin directs George Farquhar’s wild comedy of love and cash. Mr Aimwell and Mr Archer are two charming, dissolute young men who have spent all their money in London. Their ‘Strategem’: to marry for money.
Posing as master and servant at the local inn, they encounter a teeming variety of human obstacles, from a fearsome highwayman to a strange, turbulent priest. But their greatest obstacle is love. How long will they be able to keep their true identities secret now that they have met their match?
