We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.
Mrs Rich, a wealthy widow, aspires to rub shoulders with the great and good and perhaps even gain a title. Unfortunately, she's not the only one after Sir John Roverhead! Unlike Aphra Behn, a fellow female playwright from the late 1600s, Mary Pix has been almost lost to history. But like Behn's The Rover, a sell-out success in early 2017, Pix's comedy of manners combines mischief-making and mind-bending plot twists with a sharp satirical and distinctly female wit. Her colourful cast of characters dupe and dissemble as the intrigue builds. Will Mrs Rich ever squeeze her way into high society?Performers Jeff Alexander (Coachman), Aretha Ayeh (Lucinda), Daisy Badger (Lady Landsworth), Greg Barnett (Belvoir), Graeme Brookes (Footman), Will Brown (Jack), Hayley Considine (Governess), Laura Elsworthy (Betty), Sandy Foster (Mrs Trickwell), Ashley Gayle (Footman), Amanda Hadingue (Toni), Richard Hurst (Footman), Solomon Israel (Younger Clerimont), Emily Johnstone (Maid), Susan Salmon (Lady la Basset), Sadie Shimmin (Mrs Fidget), Michael Simkins (Mr Rich), Sophie Stanton (Mrs Rich), Jessica Turner (Mrs Clerimont), Tam Williams (Sir John Roverhead), Leo Wringer (Elder Clerimont).
