The Recruiting Officer
The play opens with the recruiter, Captain Plume's Sergeant Kite, recruiting in the town of Shrewbury. Plume arrives, in love with Sylvia, closely followed by Worthy, a local gentleman who is in love with Sylvia's cousin Melinda. Melinda was about to marry Worthy a year previously but then changed her mind after coming into an inheritance of £20,000 and it seems to Worthy that she is now welcoming the attentions of Captain Brazen, another recruiter - actually, however, Melinda's maid Lucy is responding to Brazen's advances under the guise of being Melinda, hoping to marry him herself. This leads Melinda and Sylvia to argue and part.
Shakespeare in the Park will be performed at the Fergus County Fairgrounds in Lewistown.
