The Dulwich Players present The Rover by Aphra Behn
To be performed at the Edward Alleyn Theatre, Dulwich College, SE21 7LD
Wednesday 23rd – Saturday 26th October 2019 at 8 p.m.
King Charles II is in exile, and his supporters have fled Puritan England for sunnier, more entertaining climes. As the lads exhibit some 17th century ‘Brits Abroad’ behaviour, Hellena, ‘a gay young woman designed for a nun’, convinces her sister that they too should take the opportunity to disguise themselves in masquerade and explore the world of sex and romance…
Written by England’s first female playwright, Aphra Behn’s dark comedy explores the relationship between gender, power and sexual liberty in the 17th century, which remains surprisingly pertinent today.
