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 ;-)
Jilted on the verge of marriage, Sir Roderick spurns all contact with all women. The woman who jilted him, wooed with verses by another, became Lady Smatter and is, she feels, at the centre of literary life, peppering her every sentence with misremembered quotations. Sir Roderick has severed relations with his sister Eleonora because she presumed to marry Wilmot, Lady Smatter's brother. That marriage has now foundered over suspected adultery. Years have now passed, children have grown up and heirs need to be found. In this world of antagonism and suspicion is it possible for love to blossom and hat to wither? Fanny Burney is famous - as a novelist and as a woman of letters and as a participant in the literary circles of the day. Yet she also wrote plays and our production of
The Woman Hater
will be, incredibly, the British premier of her 1802 play!
