Irish Repertory Theatre continues its 2019-2020 Off-Broadway season on the Francis J. Greenburger Mainstage with a revival of London Assurance, written by Dion Boucicault and directed by Charlotte Moore.
In London Assurance, a high-spirited farce, the vain and lustful Sir Harcourt Courtley travels to Oak Hall to meet his bride-to-be, the charming young Grace Harkaway, whose hand comes with £15,000 a year. But when the beautiful and vibrant Lady Gay Spanker joins the party, Sir Harcourt becomes too enamored with her to notice that Grace is falling in love with his young son Charles, who has arrived in disguise, pursued by his creditors! A parade of eccentric characters and merry mishaps ensue in this classic comedy of manners.
