The Rover by Aphra Behn

Rover 18

A bold new promenade production of the 17th century Restoration comedy The Rover, by the first female playwright Aphra Behn, will be presented at Hampton Court Palace. Press night is Monday 2 July at 7.30pm
Presented in conjunction with the Palace’s The Wild, the Beautiful and the Damned exhibition, and with a cast of 28, the action in The Rover moves through the majestic Baroque apartments and gardens, drawing the audience into a world of beauty, sensuality and danger.
Hugely popular in its day, The Rover depicts a shocking world of unimaginable pleasures, sometimes bought at a terrible price.
