About this show

Written as a spoof of sentimental plays more than two hundred years ago, this exuberant comedy ranks with the best works of Oscar Wilde and Noel Coward. Lydia Languish, whose head is full of romantic novels, yearns to elope, preferably with a penniless lover -- setting the stage for country squires, baronets and other suitors to woo her, all under the watchful eye of her guardian Mrs. Malaprop. A whirl of mistaken identities, duels, well-turned phrases, and whimsical humor by the author of The School for Scandal. Sunday performances are at 2pm on May 2nd and 23rd, and at 7pm on May 9th and 16th.
