Don’t miss what The Weekly calls “a satisfying rough-and-tumble” and The Stranger calls “very funny . . . a delight!” THE ROVER is the most famous play by Aphra Behn, the first notably successful female English playwright. Set in Naples during Carnivale, disguises and mistaken identities dominate this playful and exciting comedy, where characters who take love seriously are punished and she with the most wit wins. Ghost Light Theatricals’ production celebrates the joy of playing dress-up, the intrigue of finding a masked lover, the extravagance of drunken duels, and the fury of a drag queen scorned.
Directed by Beth Raas, THE ROVER features an energetic and talented cast: Patrick Allcorn, Neil S. Brookshire, Erika Godwin, Brandon Hoskins, Si Issler, Molly Mahar, Joe McLaughlin, Beth Anne Moceri, Kate Parker, Evan Tucker, Brian Giannini Upton, and Barry Cogswell as Miss Angelica Bianca.
