About this product
- DescriptionIt is the year 1680. Beaugard and Courtine return to London from wars abroad - empty handed and disenchanted. Beaugard hits on a brilliant scheme to improve their fortunes. Clarinda, unhappily married to the aged, infatuated Sir Davey Dunce, concocts a plan to reverse her fortunes. And Sir Jolly Jump, one of the great portraits of wayward sexuality, sets about helping the lovers, thereby enhancing his fortunes...Otway's restoration comedy is brutally, hilariously modern - but the undertow of deep sensuality suggests it is a missing link between Much Ado About Nothing and Oscar Wilde. The Soldiers' Fortune opens at the Young Vic Theatre, London in December 2006.
- Author BiographyThomas Otway (1652-1685) wrote three comedies for the stage, of which The Soldiers' Fortune is the best known.
