The Recruiting Officer

$10 – $20

The British have just won the great Battle of Blenheim and now they are back in the countryside to replenish their forces. The military officers enlist all of the able-bodied people they can find with hilarious hijinks and trickery, but in the midst of the recruiting, the gentlemen find themselves in love. Farquhar brings a whole new level to the metaphor of love as war with scintillating dialogue, seductive strategizing, and even sword fighting! Our ensemble cast will lead the audience through the play’s intricate twists and turns as we ride through the rollercoaster of love, schemes, and inheritances.
