The Civic are excited to welcome back the brilliantly talented students from Liberties College, with a classic remake of “The Recruiting Officer”.
First produced in 1706 at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, London, The Recruiting Officer is a popular Restoration comedy by Irish writer George Farquhar. The play is set in the town of Shrewsbury and follows the exploits of Captains Plume and Brazen, army recruiting officers, as they romantically pursue Sylvia and Melinda.
