The Cassilis Engagement

$8 – $22

The Cassilis Engagement

An engagement you won’t want to miss! This Oscar-Wilde-style comedy is subtitled “a Comedy for Mothers”, written as a period comedy in 4 acts. Fans of The importance of Being Earnest will love this one. Young Geoffrey Cassilis, the widowed Mrs. Cassilis’ only son and heir to a vast country estate and fortune, has fallen in love with Ethel Borridge, a lowly shopgirl he met during an omnibus accident in London. Mrs. Cassilis’ friends and relations in the country around the family seat at Milverton are appalled both at the engagement and at Mrs. Cassilis’ seeming approval of it. “Seeming” is indeed the key word. Mrs. Cassilis is afraid that if she were to let her true feelings of opposition be known and object openly to the engagement, Geoffrey might marry the girl out of spite. Instead, Mrs. Cassilis’ strategy is to invite Ethel and her mother to stay with them in the country to see if the lowborn city girl can really stand the “dull” kind of life her fiancé will live. Worlds collide as the unbridled Mrs. Borridge bursts on to the scene and takes on the refined country life with hilarious results.
