The Belle's Stratagem
April 6–16, 2023
In this light-hearted comedy of courtship, the lovely and mischievous Letitia is engaged to Doricourt, a childhood friend who seems indifferent towards her. Letitia accordingly sets in motion a scheme to make her fiancé either fall in love with her – or hate her, which is apparently just as good. Written in the mannered style of 1780, Hannah Cowley’s rom-com romp cries across the centuries demanding love, decency and equality.
