“A daft comedy about greed”

For Love or Money

Tuesday 7 November–Saturday 11 November 2017

A new adaptation of Lesage’s Turcaret
by Blake Morrison
Directed by (and featuring) Barrie Rutter

It’s the 1920s. In a small Yorkshire town, the wily-widow, Rose, entertains the advances of two dubious suitors. Fuller (Barrie Rutter) is a fabulously rich and morally corrupt banker who woos Rose by parading his wealth whilst hiding a few secrets.

Handsome Arthur is much younger and deceitful through and through. He plays Rose for as much money as she can take from Fuller.

A love triangle then; a deliciously wicked tale of rivalry and greed.

Throw in a bailiff, a drunkard, a vamp, a second-hand clothes dealer and two upwardly mobile servants, and the complications multiply.

Adapted from Alain-Rene Lesage’s savage eighteenth-century comedy Turcaret, Blake Morrison’s For Love or Money is a story of monstrous wealth and whopping lies.

Northern Broadsides ‘ Artistic Director Barrie Rutter will direct and feature in this production, in his final performance for the company at the New Vic.

TALKBACK: Tue 7 November


Approx Running Times:
7.30pm – 9.45pm
