The Rain or Shine Theatre Company were a real hit in Wimborne last summer with their production of She Stoops to Conquer.
Now the professional players are hoping to return to the area again this ear with their production of The Recruiting Officer, a bawdy Restoration comedy by George Farquhar.
The story follows the mischief of crooked army recruiting officers, Captain Plume and Sergeant Kite, as they head to the county town of Shrewsbury to persuade men to take the Queen’s Shilling by any means, legal or otherwise.
Plume has set his cap at the richest heiress in town, the demure Sylvia, and their bumpy path to true love is mirrored by their closest friends, nervy, melancholy Worthy, and haughty, comically self-important Melinda. Help and hindrance come in equal measure from Captain Brazen, the foppiest of fops.
Be prepared for saucy shenanigans in a hilarious romp awash with deceit, passion, and surprises galore.
Consequently, Rain or Shine are looking for new venues for their al fresco production. So if you have a village hall with an outside space, a large private garden, castle, manor house, or any other outdoor performance space, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
