After squandering their fortunes on drink and gambling, Tom Aimwell and Jack Archer seek refuge in the countryside. They hope to seduce two ladies of status and fortune, but true love and a band of thieves soon complicate their scheming. This play was adapted by Thornton Wilder in 1939 and finished 65 years later by Tony Award-nominated playwright Ken Ludwig. Together, Wilder and Ludwig’s work sheds new light on Farquhar’s spirited dialogue and hilarious characters. The performance will run:
• Thursday, Nov. 11, through Saturday, Nov. 13, 7:30 p.m.
• Sunday, Nov. 14, 2:30 p.m.
• Wednesday, Nov. 17, through Saturday, Nov. 20, 7:30 p.m.
