It’s the 1920s. In a small Yorkshire town, the wily-widow, Rose, entertains the advances of two dubious suitors. Fuller is a fabulously rich and morally corrupt banker who woos Rose by parading his wealth whilst hiding a few secrets. Handsome Arthur is much younger and deceitful through and through. He plays Rose for as much money as she can take from Fuller.
A love triangle then; a deliciously wicked tale of rivalry and greed.
Throw in a bailiff, a drunkard, a vamp, a second-hand clothes dealer and two upwardly mobile servants, and the complications multiply.
A firm favourite with LBT audiences, Northern Broadsides (The Merry Wives, The Winter’s Tale, She Stoops to Conquer) return with an adaptation of Alain-René Lesage’s savage eighteenth century comedy Turcaret, directed by and featuring Broadsides’ Artistic Director Barrie Rutter OBE. Blake Morrison’s FOR LOVE OR MONEY is a story of monstrous wealth and whopping lies.
