London Assurance

London Assurance at the Olivier Theatre, London.

The brilliantly funny London Assurance was written by the Irish genius of London theatre Dion Boucicault in 1841 and created two of the great comic roles of the English stage, Sir Harcourt Courtly played by Simon Russell Beale and Lady Spanker played by Fiona Shaw.

Sir Harcourt Courtly is lured away from the epicentre of fashionable London by the promise of a rich and beautiful bride, Grace, several decades his junior. Arriving at Oak Hall, Gloucestershire, he marvels at this rural Venus until her charms are eclipsed by her hearty cousin, the foxhunting Lady Gay Spanker. Meanwhile his disguised son turns up in flight from his creditors and falls head over heels for Grace. When Lady Spanker discovers the young couple, she needs little prompting from the visiting chancer Dazzle to lead Sir Harcourt astray.

London Assurance will open at the Olivier Theatre (at the National Theatre) in London tomorrow, 2nd March 2010 – but only until June so for more information and to check availability for this comedy show go to London Assurance Theatre Tickets.

Women Beware Women

Women Beware Women at Olivier Theatre in April

Women Beware Women is the blackly funny, fast and ferocious tragedy from Thomas Middleton – where corruption will not go unpunished!

In the Italian court, where wealth secures power and power serves lust, the lascivious Duke can play wherever he chooses. He catches the eye of another’s exquisite bride, Bianca. Can a glance secure her fate, a bribe appease her husband?

Isabella’s father would marry her off to a rich young idiot, while Hippolito has won her trust and desires her truly. But he’s her uncle. These are her choices. If twice-widowed Livia conspires against her sex to gain a little clout, she’s only fighting to survive.

Women Beware Woman will open at the Olivier Theatre in London on 20th April 2010. For more information and to check ticket availability go to Women Beware Women Theatre Tickets.
