National Theatre Live presents The Beaux’ Stratagem at the SJT

Susannah Fielding (Mrs Sullen)

The National Theatre’s production of George Farquhar's wild comedy of love and cash can be seen live on the cinema screen in Scarborough.

The Beaux’ Stratagem, directed by Simon Godwin (Man and Superman), will be broadcast from the London stage to the Stephen Joseph Theatre on Thursday 3 September at 7pm.

The ‘Beaux’: Mr Aimwell and Mr Archer, two charming, dissolute young men who have blown their fortunes in giddy London. Shamed and debt-ridden, they flee to provincial Lichfield. Their ‘Stratagem’: to marry for money.

Lodged at the local inn, posing as master and servant, they encounter a teeming variety of human obstacles: a crooked landlord, a fearsome highwayman, a fervent French Count, a maid on the make, a drunken husband, a furious butler, a natural healer and a strange, turbulent priest.

But their greatest obstacle is love. When the Beaux meet their match in Dorinda and Mrs Sullen they are most at risk, for in love they might be truly discovered.

Tickets, priced at £17, are available from the Box Office on 01723 370541 and online at
