Shaw's crackling comedy, set in the middle of the American War of Independence, is the story of the rascal, Dick Dudgeon, a young revolutionary brought up in a harshly puritan home, who finds himself starved for a true religion. His passionate belief in the right to human happiness lands him smack in the middle of a masquerade which could result in life-threatening consequences.
The cast includes Curzon Dobell, Jenny Fullner, Sean Gormley, Cristin Milioti, Craig Pattison, Lorenzo Pisoni, Darcy Pulliam, Robert Sedgwick, John Windsor-Cunningham, and Richard B. Watson.
The creative team includes Heather Wolensky (sets), Rebecca Lustig (costumes), Brian Nason (lighting), and Zach Williamson (sound). In addition to being an Oscar- and Tony Award-winning designer, Walton has directed the Irish Rep's productions of The Importance of Being Earnest, Major Barbara and After the Ball.
