SPT proudly presents The Roaring Girl

Couldn't get enough Shakespeare last weekend? Want to witness a tale of steampunk, cutpurses, true love, and deceit? You won't want to miss SPT's second and final performance of the fall semester:

                     **THE ROARING GIRL**
                         Written by Thomas Middleton & Thomas Dekker
                                    Directed by Christina Pellegrino '18

Set during a steampunk Victorian England, The Roaring Girl follows the various shenanigans of characters as they try to make their dreams come true with Moll Cutpurse, a gender non-conforming Robin Hood-type, at the center of it all. Sebastian Wengrave enlists the help of Moll, so that he can marry his fiancΓ© Mary Fitzallard, and convince his father that Mary is the best person Sebastian could marry. Sebastian’s father, Sir Alexander, distressed that his son is 'in love' with a person who does not follow traditional values enlists the help of Trapdoor, a thief, to spy on Moll. Goshawk and Laxton, two gallants, try to seduce Mrs. Gallipot and Mrs. Openwork, merchants’ wives, to no avail. Come for the steampunk; stay for the shenanigans.
