Theatre UCF presents The Rover

By Aphra Behn
Directed by Christopher Niess
Travel to Italy where love, lust and sword fights bring this restoration comedy about a band of banished Englishmen to life.
Love, lust and confusion set in when a band of banished English Cavaliers, including Colonel Belvile and Captain Willmore, arrive in Naples during Carnival. One is in search of love and the other a good time. Considered the first professional female playwright, Aphra Behn brings a witty and chaotic look at the idea of love and lust filled with mistaken identity, lies, sword fights and extravagant disguises in this 17th century classic.
