London Assurance at Stratford Festival Theatre

Why see London Assurance?

"I Like A Little Nonsense Now And Then"

Stratford plays host to "London Assurance," the timeless comedy written by Dion Boucicault and centered around Sir Harcourt Courtly, an aging London dandy! Seeking to restore his fortunes, Sir Harcourt travels to Oak Hall to marry a young heiress, Grace Harkaway. However, his plans are disrupted by his rebellious son, Charles, and a host of eccentric characters, including the vivacious Lady Gay Spanker and her amiable husband, Dolly. There's witty exchanges and farcical situations aplenty, contrasting Sir Harcourt's outdated ideals with the more progressive attitudes of the younger generation.

Debuted in 1841, London Assurance is celebrated as one of Britain's greatest comedies. Its enduring appeal lies in its lively characters and relatable themes of love, deception, and generational conflict, securing its place as a classic in British theatre.
