This wild comedy about romance and cash is playing at the National Theatre from 19 May until Sunday 20 September 2015. 

Show Description – The Beaux’ Stratagem

Mr Aimwell – aka – the ‘Beaux’ – and Mr Archer are two charming young men who have blown all their fortunes in London. Ridden in debt and red-faced, the two men flee London in favour of Litchfield. The dissolute young men’s ‘stratagem’ is to marry for money.

Staying at a local Litchfield Inn under the guise of a master and servant, Aimwell and Archer fall upon a number of obstacles, including a bent landlord, a treacherous highwayman, a drunken husband, an angry butler, a passionate French Count, and a tempestuous priest, amongst other strange characters. 
 
Will the Beaux ever meet their love match?
 
George Farquhar’s final play was first produced at the Theatre Royal in London in 1707. The Beaux Stratagem was adapted by Thornton Wilder and Ken Ludwig in 1939 but was never finished. In 2006 the adaptation was finally completed and premiered at The Shakespeare Royal Theatre Company of Washington DC.
