A new play about Derry-born playwright George Farquhar and the writing of one of his best-loved plays has just gone into rehearsals.
‘By Mr Farquhar’ centres on the time in the young man’s life when he famously penned ‘The Beaux Stratagem’, a swashbuckling romp which tells the tale of two girl-crazy adventurers on the road trip of their young lives.
‘By Mr Farquhar’ will run at the Foyle Theatre (North West Regional College) from September 25-October 1, 2013 (8pm). Tickets £10.50 and £8.50 (conc). For more, visit www.millenniumforum.co.uk or telephone 028 71264455.
It takes place during the Blue Eagle George Farquhar Theatre Festival.
