RBC Theatre Company presents: Love for Love
Written by William Congreve
Directed by Nicolette Kay
William Congreve pokes satirical fun at the tittle tattle, vanity, scandalous behaviour and extravagance of the fashionable set. In this witty comedy the titillating threat of public shame hangs over these frolicking women and men about town.
Valentine is madly in love with Angelica and he’s spent a fortune vainly trying to impress her. While his mates gather to cheer him up and keep the creditors at bay, his furious father, Sir Sampson, arranges to stop his inheritance.
This is a modern and Restoration portrayal of madness, fun, fake news, misinformation and love.
