“[Aphra Behn] wrote things that no other female writer addressed for over 200 years.”
Director Loveday Ingram explores the context, themes and characters of Aphra Behn’s Restoration comedy, The Rover, which follows the escapades of a group of Spanish women and three banished English cavaliers during a carnival in Naples.
Loveday details her research into 17th-century England, exemplifying how Behn deals with social, political and sexual issues through farcical situations and playful language, and provides insight into her process for bringing the play to life for the RSC in 2016.
