The Recruiting Officer by Richard Farquhar will be performed by Rain Or Shine Theatre Company on the open-air stage.


One of the most popular plays of its time this is a delightful comedic romp through 18th Century Shrewsbury following crooked Army recruiting officers dashing Captain Plume and devious Sergeant Kite as they persuade men to take the King's shilling by any means, legal or otherwise. Vivacious Sylvia, haughty Melinda, melancholy Worthy and foppish Captain Brazen are their accomplices in deceit, passion, sword fights and surprises.
