THE ROVER
 
Written by  Aphra Behn
Directed by  M. Graham Smith

October 15 - November 15, 2015
EXTENDED to November 21!

PAY-WHAT-YOU-CAN PREVIEWS:  October 15-21
OPENING NIGHT: October 22

Have sexual politics really changed since 1677?  Set in Naples during the Carnival masquerade, The Rover is a comic romp with an edge. When three women push the boundaries of their expected roles, the responses range from utter delight to violence. Playwright Aphra Behn uses the mask of comedy to explore romance, gender roles, and the particular dangers for women daring to have a voice.

Running Time: 2 hours and 30 minutes, including one 10-minute intermission.


"Racuous and side-splittingly funny." - The Daily Californian

"It's a fast, sharp farce with a nasty, vicious edge." - KQED

Remember that we love you, but there is no late seating at Shotgun Players. Performances begin promptly. Due to the configuration of our theater latecomers will only be seated at the intermission if and when a production has one. This is a policy we must enforce without exceptions, due to the design of our theatre, and for the safety of our actors and audience members.
