About London Assurance:

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.

Our London Assurance Review

For a short period of time a canny observer will find a time traveller’s portal on the south side of West 22nd Street. The price of a ticket for the Irish Rep’s London Assurance puts you smack in the middle of the nineteenth century.
