Centlivre at the Folger

Eighteenth-century theater fans can also follow the production blog for Susanna Centlivre’s The Gaming Table (originally, The Basset Table).  If you scroll down, you can find instructions on how to play basset.


The London Merchant

The Storm Theatre and  The Blackfriars Repertory Theatre in New York are now producing George Lillo’s The London Merchant!  The play received a favorable review in The New York Times.  I have never seen this play produced or even heard of a modern production, but students consistently like it. The production seems like it would be well worth seeing.
