The Beau Defeated


By Mary Pix
Directed by Fiona Buffini

Unhampered by manners or good taste, Mrs Rich runs riot through high society aspiring to rub shoulders with the great and the good. Taking full advantage of her desperation and wealth, the pilfering Mrs Trickwell advises Mrs Rich on how best to conduct herself, and sends her sailing from one embarrassment to the next until she falls for the notorious charms of local womaniser, Sir John Roverhead. Meanwhile the handsome and virtuous Clerimont is refusing all company since discovering his fortune has been seized by his pompous elder brother. But will a chance meeting with a masked stranger change that?

Thursday 6 February (7.15pm)
Friday 7 February (2.15pm & 7.15pm)
Saturday 8 February (7.15pm)
