The Basset Table

Event, Performing Arts Series, Garden City Event, Theatre


Written by Susanna Centlivre

The Basset Table follows the fortunes of Lady Reveller, who runs a table where her friends play the card game basset, and her struggle to avoid marrying Lord Worthy. Meanwhile, Lady Reveller’s cousin, Valeria, spends her time conducting scientific experiments and dissections, but her father intends to marry her off to the bluff sea-captain Hearty. How can Lady Reveller be persuaded to forego the delights of gambling? And how can Valeria avoid an unwanted marriage? This witty Restoration comedy is filled with characters who revel in their gambling, and their story is one in which deceit, not love, conquers all.

Featuring the students of the Department of Theatre.
