A Trick to Catch the Old One
by Thomas Middleton
6th – 24th May 2014, The Rose Playhouse, Bankside.
When young Witgood's greedy uncle tricks him out of his inheritance he determines to get his own back by passing off his courtesan as a wealthy widow. But news of this wealthy widow's arrival sends everyone scrambling to grab the willing courtesan and Witgood's plot threatens to spin out of control.
Who the devil (or Old One) is amongst all these schemes and counter schemes is anyone's guess...
Thomas Middleton's fast paced, knockabout comedy turns on its head the notion of gentlemanly behaviour as every character strives to be the winning trickster.
