The Belle's Stratagem

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

One of the greatest hits of the Georgian stage is given its first major London revival.

In a time when women were second-class citizens, a group of wily ladies are determined to get their own way…

When beautiful Letitia Hardy's betrothed returns from the Grand Tour convinced that English women are dull, she sets out to gain his love with an ingenious scheme to prove him wrong.

Meanwhile, the jealous Sir George Touchwood arrives in town with his new wife, Lady Frances, in tow. It's not long before two of London's most rambunctious wits, Miss Ogle and Mrs Rackett, make it their mission to convert her into a lady of fashion.

Starring Gina Beck as Letitia Hardy, Jackie Clune as Miss Ogle, Hannah Spearritt as Lady Frances, Maggie Steed as Mrs Rackett and Robin Soans as Hardy.
