DIRECTED BY Gyllian Raby

Hannah Cowley's most successful Town Comedy of 1783 demonstrated how to get your man and keep him in Georgian times -- but once relocated in today's Toronto, the laughing feminism lurking within the Marriage Plot is exposed in all its decadent hilarity.

Director and DART professor Gyllian Raby and assistant director Nick Leno have adapted and updated Hannah Cowley's 18th-century comedy to be set in today's Toronto.
