The Beaux’ Stratagem Written by George Farquhar Adapted by Thornton Wilder and Ken Ludwig Directed by Adam Simon August 1 – September 1, 2013 / Thursdays through Sundays / 8pm Schiller Park The Beaux’ Stratagem is a comedy by George Farquhar, first produced at the Queen’s Theatre, now the site of Her Majesty’s Theatre, in the Haymarket, London, in March 1707. In the play, Archer and Aimwell, two young gentlemen who have fallen on hard times, plan to travel through small towns, entrap young heiresses, steal their money and move on. In the first town, Lichfield, they set their sights on Dorinda. Aimwell falls truly in love, and comedy ensues. Foigard, a priest and chaplain to the French officer, is actually an Irish priest called MacShane (a sombre version of the stage-Irish stereotype).
