A New Way to Pay Old Debts


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Massingerís comedy, written in 1625 at a time of increasing class distinction and capitalist activity, still has the power to speak directly to us.

The machinations and ruthless business practices of Sir Giles Overreach will have resonance for a contemporary audience.

Have we not all become disgusted with corporate malpractice and city greed? However, satisfaction will be had as Overreach gets his comeuppance.

His social climbing and philosophy of ĎI must have all men sellers and I the only purchaserí are defeated by the united goodwill and wit of those he tries to abuse and defraud.

Directed by Liz Bagley.
