Shakespeare in the Parks Brings ‘The Recruiting Officer’ to Hamilton

This year’s Shakespeare in the Parks presentation in Hamilton will not be a Shakespeare play. But don’t fear, it will be a high level of entertainment.

The play from the 1700s is George Farquhar’s “The Recruiting Officer,” which has almost as many twists and comedic turns as a comedy by the Bard. The MSU touring troupe will perform the play on an outdoor stage at the Daly Mansion grounds Wednesday, August 28, at 6 p.m.

It’s free, though the audience is encouraged to donate what they can (and to also buy “Shakespeare in the Park” memorabilia.) The gates will open early, so the audience can bring their picnic suppers to the play.

The play is a Restoration comedy with two plots involving two couples in a satire on military life and recruiting tactics – both used by the military and by lovers. Original music also is scattered through the performance.
