About this show

Pranks and hijinks abound in this raucous 18th- century comedy of big costumes, big sets, big hair, and even bigger laughs. Two well-bred young men arrive at the country estate of Mr. Hardcastle, intending to woo his daughter Kate and her cousin Constance, but when local mischief-maker Tony Lumpkin plays a practical joke on the city slickers, the Hardcastle household is launched into a dizzying, deliciously preposterous romp of mistaken identity. True to fashion, Nicholas Martin assembles a fearless ensemble of comic all-stars and WTF favorites sure to thrill and delight.
