About The Rover

Aphra Behn’s anarchic restoration comedy is rich with seduction, intrigue and danger in the topsy-turvy world of the carnival. The talented Loveday Ingram returns to the RSC to direct.

The Story

Three wandering cavaliers, exiled from Cromwell’s England, meet up in a Spanish colony as carnival begins.Meanwhile three wealthy sisters escape their overbearing brother and disappear into the city in search of love. As night falls and the wine flows, chaos ensues. Passions run high as lovers meet, men are conned and swords drawn.

History of The Rover

Arguably the first ever professional female playwright in England, Behn’s is a strong voice of early feminism. The Rover was last staged in 1986 as part of the Swan Theatre’s first ever season. It makes a return now to celebrate this much loved theatre in its 30th year.
