Play By the Book

Dramatic readings of exciting plays, offering new perspectives and voices expanding the classical canon.


The Belle’s Stratagem by Hannah Crowley

In this amusing, witty, and subversive Restoration comedy, the power dynamics within marriage are challenged by Letitia Hardy as she tries to woo her betrothed, the rake Doricourt. Written by one of the most successful female playwrights of the period, this comedy of social morals and decorum takes the concepts and situations of the genre and reimagines them from the female perspective.

Presented in collaboration with Shakespeare BASH’d. Facilitated by Julia Nish-Lapidus and James Wallis.
