‘The Rover’ is a seventeenth century black comedy set during the carnival in Naples. When placed in a modern setting, ‘The Rover’ deals with the romantic escapades of a group of lads on holiday and explores important contemporary issues including sexual abuse and gender.
The entitled ‘rover’ is Willmore (Peter Adefioye), a self-assured naval captain who falls in love with Hellena (Laura Prince), a young woman soon destined to become a nun. Things become complicated when a well-known courtesan, Angellica Bianca (Kat Tinnirello-Savvas) falls for Willmore and seeks revenge for his betrayal.
The naive English country gentleman, Blunt (Luke Dell), also seeks revenge, when the woman he admires, Lucetta (Becky Guthrie), deceives him. Meanwhile, Hellena’s sister, Florinda (Katie Whitehouse), strives to marry her true love, Belville (Dan Spencer), rather than the man her brother, the Viceroy’s son Don Antonio (Jasmina O’Shaughnessy), chose for her.
Also starring Anastasia Raymond (Moretta), Johnathan Doyle (Frederick), Lotti Howson (Valeria), Margi Humphrey (Antonio) and Charlotte Dunn (Callis), ‘The Rover’ is not a show to be missed!
Thursday 26th, Friday 27th, Saturday 28th November, 7pm.
