D I R E C TO R ’ S N O T E S I actually had a chance to go to Lichfield, England this summer. It’s a lovely little town with a beautiful cathedral in its center. There are buildings from every century, from the Tudors on, nestled in its winding streets (including the ubiquitous McDonalds). I got to have a drink at the pub in The George Hotel. In 1707, George Farquhar modeled the innkeeper in our play after its owner. Other characters are said to be based on other local denizens of the time as well. I got to have tea in The Chapter House garden with the cathedral spires looking down at me. Everywhere I went I imagined the characters in our play living here and began imaginary casting of the people on the street in appropriate roles. It made me happy to be there, and I became very eager to share my experience. I thought about when Deb Krajec first brought this adaptation of The Beaux’ Stratagem to our season selection meeting. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. I’m quite a purist at heart and was initially dubious that an “adaptation” of the original Farquhar piece was the way to go in terms choosing a period piece as a learning experience for the students. Those concerns went quickly out the window as I started reading and found myself laughing out loud. Literally! The spirit of the play and the period was very much intact. It was clear to me that the students would still have the experience of creating and using the appropriate costumes and scenery. The actors would still be working with the language of the time, as the text is in many places verbatim with the original. The wonderful idiosyncratic characters still captured the manners of the time and allowed us to explore this more presentational style of performance. Then there were the benefits to the audience. Some of the more obscure humor and conventions of the time had been trimmed making it an extremely accessible and downright funny piece of theatre for any time period. It became my mission to try and bring that wonderful world to my cast and to you the audience. Now we will take you to Lichfield, and hope that you laugh out loud as well. Maureen Kilmurry

N O T E S O N T H I S A DA P TAT I O N For more than 200 years this celebrated late Restoration comedy, with its timelessly wicked and witty observations about society and differences between the sexes, was one of England’s most popular and performed comedies. First produced in 1707, The Beaux’, as it is known familiarly, is still produced occasionally in England. But in this country, while routinely included in anthologies of Restoration drama, The Beaux’ is rarely seen on stage outside a university or conservatory setting. In the fall of 1939, with the goal of making it more accessible to a modern audience, Thornton Wilder began, but never completed, an adaptation of The Beaux’ Stratagem. In 2004, Ken Ludwig accepted the invitation offered by the Wilder estate to finish the work. The completed play, sixty-seven years in the making, was produced with great success in 2006 by the Shakespeare Theatre Company in Washington, D.C.

SCENIC DESIGN CONCEPT

In researching the period in which Farquhar’s sets his boisterous comedy, I didn’t have to look much further than the satirical paintings of William Hogarth. His “Rakes Progress” and “Marriage a la Mode” conveyed the same wit and humor in The Beaux’ Stratagem and was richly detailed with the appropriate settings, properties, and characters. Look around the set and you may recognize some of his handiwork. Thanks William!

Marquette University 9


COSTUME DESIGN CONCEPT The Beaux’ Stratagem was written in the early 1700’s, in a time in history that was about to transition from the heavy Baroque style to a lighter, feminine Rococo style. It takes place in a small country town in England, and does not have a preponderance of upper class aristocratic characters like so many other plays in this era. Instead, we have lots of country folk, both honorable and dis-honorable, and a few landed gentry known for their eccentric personalities and character flaws. Therefore, my aim with the design for costumes for this production was to be true to the nature of these personalities, as well as to give a taste of the fashion styles of the period as they might be seen in a small country town. Lady Bountiful and her son Sullen have the most elaborate clothing – she is a wealthy, generous matriarch of the town, and dresses very smartly, even though her rather gory hobby of practicing medicine doesn’t suit her clothing nor her status. The wonderful visual metaphor I was given for Lady B by director Maureen Kilmurry was that she is “like Zsa Zsa Gabor in ‘Green Acres’, the old TV show – she dresses in her finest clothes and jewels to do the most ridiculous things.” She chooses the clothing for her sot of a son, Sullen, I think, and perhaps fancier duds than he would chose for himself. He also is dressed very finely for staggering around the house with a constant snoot full. The two young heroes of the play, Archer and Aimwell, also have specific fashion requirements to help them portray their chosen identities: Aimwell takes on the persona of a rich lord, and Archer his servant. So their clothes must suit those social stations while they play their “stratagem” to find a wealthy woman to wed and solve their money problems. Hence, Aimwell’s clothes must reflect that of a travelling gentleman, and Archer of his manservant. We also have other unsavory characters, lower class locals, whose dress must reflect their station in life and their economic status. I have placed most of the country folks in earth tones, with the exception of Gloss, the crooked cleric who dresses in black, and Cherry, the saucy sweet, and ultimately honest bar wench with a true heart who dresses in a ripe red color to suit her name. The rest of the upper class folks wear more colorful, patterned attire in brighter colors and richer fabrics suitable to their positions, but also to their location; they would have much finer clothing were they in London. I’ve done my best to allow the character to emerge thru the clothing choices, and chosen to “tweak” historical accuracy in a few places to suit the action required. I have loved designing a show that has women sword fighting!!! It is my hope the clothing styles and colors will help you to understand who each of the characters are and what their personalities might be, and add to your enjoyment of the play.
