Tickets on Sale for Oriel Garden Play

  • The Beaux' Stratagem
30 May, 2018

Tickets are now on sale for this year's Oriel Garden Play, a production of George Farquhar's The Beaux' Stratagem. The play will run for three nights from Tuesday 12th to Thursday 14th June.

The Beaux’: Mr Aimwell and Mr Archer, two charming, dissolute young men who have blown their fortunes in London. Taking their shame and debt with them they flee to provincial Lichfield. Their ‘Stratagem’: to marry for money.

Posing as master and servant at a local inn, difficulties meet them at every turn. But the greatest obstacle they face 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.

With seduction, disguise and the age old clash of love and money, this year’s garden play presents Restoration Comedy at its best.
