A classical comedy, full of mistaken identities, deceit, avarice, double standards, buffoonery, and of course love.
Town and country, old and new, collide at Mr Hardcastle’s shabby and unchic ancestral home. Confined within these provincial walls Mrs Hardcastle pines for the cultural polish of the Capital.
Enter the good looking and eligible Young Marlow – potential suitor to the quick witted and resolute Miss Kate Hardcastle. He is a man – hopelessly tongue tied with toffs and positively improper with plebs. She is a woman – sharp, sassy and in complete control.
As relevant set in Edwardian times (think Downton Abbey) as when it was written by Oliver Goldsmith in 1773. Phoenix Theatre’s talented cast bring an innate sense of fun to this accessible and delightfully ludicrous romantic romp.
Admission: Adults $25 Concessions $20
