CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020, work is underway to re-open safely. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.
Two young men have each found the love of their life. Unfortunately their fathers have other ideas. So the boys turn for help to Scapino, king of con men. But the old men's obstinacy tests Scapino's ingenuity to breaking point and he is driven to evermore elaborate and ludicrous schemes to ensure that love will win the day. Written at the height of Moliere's powers, this farce is a master-class in comic construction. He conceived the role of Scapino for himself - the tricksters' trickster on his last great adventure.Performers Richard McCabe, Pip Donaghy.
