About this show

Whimsy, wit, and wordplay sparkle in this effervescent comedy by Susanna Centlivre, one of 18th-century London's most popular playwrights. An independent-minded widow with a penchant for gambling holds a nightly card game, teeming with revelers and rakes, which bankrupts some and entertains all. For this revival of Centlivre's hit, Eleanor Holdridge leads an extraordinary all-female design team, including set designer Marion Williams, costume designer Jessica Ford, lighting designer Nancy Schertler, and sound designer Veronika Vorel.
