The Beaux’ Stratagem

The original version of The Beaux’ Stratagem, written by George Farquhar, was first performed in London in 1709. It was later adapted by Thornton Wilder in 1939, though he never finished the project. That opportunity, passed on from Wilder’s estate, went to Ken Ludwig (Lend Me a Tenor), who completed work on it in time for the new version’s debut in 2006.
