Wild Oats is a riotous, 18th Century romantic comedy about a traveling thespian who has mastered every role — except his own. He seizes an opportunity to impersonate a naval cadet and woo a virtuous Quaker heiress. When the AWOL student and his blustery sea captain father arrive, however, everyone’s secrets will be exposed. It’s a rare comic treat, especially delicious for Shakespeare fans: The hero has a quirky habit of quoting Shakespearean and borrowing roles to suit every situation: All the world is his stage. The joke’s on him, however. Nearly everyone he meets is harboring secrets as well! Fast-paced and brilliantly funny, Wild Oats will keep audiences guessing and laughing right up to a surprise ending. Rediscovered and revived in 1976 by the Royal Shakespeare Company, this comedy by the Irish-born dramatist John O’Keeffe delights audiences. CSC’s Founding Artistic Director Ian Gallanar will direct Wild Oats.
