The Northern Lass

By Richard Brome

Directed by Kim Durban

The Northern Lass by Richard Brome, a play written and first staged in 1638, is a boisterous comedy with music that focuses on the wooing and marriage of four women: Mistress Fitchow, a rich and domineering widow; Constance, the innocent Northern Lass of the title, freshly arrived in the city; Trainwell, who acts as her governess ;and Camitha Holdup, a cunning courtesan who impersonates the Northern Lass. They are wooed by Triedwell, Squelch, Nonsense, Widgeon and Luckless… as these names suggest, there is a little gentle satire about love, and more confusion here than an episode of MAFS!

Transplanted to Ballarat and set in contemporary Melbourne via Far North Queensland, this is the first time the play has been fully staged since 1738. Expect country and western songs, cool city vibes and lots of bling. Welcome to its Australian premiere directed by Kim Durban, with musical direction from Anthony Crowley, set design by Jessie Keyes and costumes by Zac Dixon.
