Conrad Nelson directs Oliver Goldsmith's romantic comedy set in the 18th century, portraying one young lady's plan to be wed
Northern Broadsides, renowned for presenting work in simple form, often using regional accents, is a company that could pretty much define the theatrical version of the word ‘accessible’. Their productions couldn’t be clearer and are always a pleasure on the eye and ear.
In this tale, an 18th century romance goes awry when the prospective bride is mistaken for a ‘lowly’ barmaid by her intended. Bawdy laughs, rowdy music and mirthful mayhem are bound to delight - the wigs alone are enough to make it worth seeing.
