CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)


The Recruiting Officer archive'Unless we could make ourselves some pleasure amidst the pain, no mortal man would be able to bear it.' It's with the promise of money, glory and adventure that Captain Plume is recruiting the men of Shrewsbury for the King's army. He's also determined to make a conquest of Sylvia, but as she's now an heiress she can afford to put him to the test. All the while, the scheming Melinda is toying with the affections of Captain Brazen and the gentleman Mr Worthy. From military manoeuvring to sexual strategies, Farquhar's triumphant The Recruiting Officer, written in 1706, is an unashamed celebration of love, lustiness and victory in battle and in the bedroom.
Performers Babou Ceesay, David Charles, Jennifer Kirby, Samuel Martin, Michael Mears, David Partridge, Gemma Soul, Samantha Sutherland, Jem Wall, Emma Williams.
Author George Farquhar. Producer Salisbury Playhouse. Corporate Sponsor Frank Brenan. Corporate Sponsor Elizabeth Brenan. Director Gareth Machin. Design Tom Rogers. Music Kate Edgar. Lighting Richard Howell.
