When young Witgood’s greedy uncle tricks him out of his inheritance he determines to get his own back by passing off his courtesan as a wealthy widow. But news of this wealthy widow’s arrival sends everyone scrambling to grab the willing courtesan and Witgood’s plot threatening to spin out of control.
Who the devil (or Old One) is amongst all these schemes and counter schemes is anyone’s guess…….
The Rose is an indoor archaeological site, it is advisable to dress with an extra layer as there is no heating. There are also no toilets so please use Shakespeare’s Globe just a few hundred metres away.
Please arrive 15 minutes before the production starts to pay for or collect your tickets.
