E-52 Student Theatre at the University of Delaware will present The Recruiting Officer, written by George Farquhar and directed by student Blair Schuman, April 12-20.
While recruiting for war, two officers -- the womanizing Plume and the cowardly Brazen -- sexually and socially exploit the town of Shrewsbury, England, where women are in a plethora of relationship complications.
This comedy of manners filled with double-dealing, cross-dressing and competition for affection comments on war life and is right for audiences who love drama.
The play will be staged at the Bacchus Theatre in the Perkins Student Center. Performances are scheduled:
April 12 at 7:30 p.m.
April 13 at 7:30 p.m.
April 14 at 2 p.m.
April 18 at 7:30 p.m.
April 19 at 7:30 p.m.
April 20 at 7:30 p.m.
Admission is $3 for students and $5 for the general public.
