In a small town in Yorkshire, a beautiful widow is being wooed by two suitors. Fresh from the City and with endless money to dispose of, the older one showers her with gifts - which the younger (handsome, impecunious, an inveterate gambler) wants to put to better use. A love triangle, then; a tale of rivalry and avarice. But money's a slippery commodity and all is not quite as it seems. Throw in a bailiff, a drunkard, a vamp, a second-hand clothes dealer and two upwardly mobile servants, and the complications multiply. Adapted from Alain-Rene Lesage's savage eighteenth-century comedy Turcaret, Blake Morrison's For Love or Money is a story of monstrous wealth and whopping lies.Performers Barrie Rutter, Matt Booth (Ruddle - bank clerk), Jim English (Martin - Farmer), Jordan Metcaalfe (Jack - odd job man/Hever - baliff), Sarah Parks (Teresa - a visitor), Sarah-Jane Potts (Rose - a widow), Kat Rose-Martin (Lisa - Maid), Joss Vantyler (Arthur - doctor's son), Jacky Naylor (Marlene - housekeeper Gwen).
