More Information on For Love or Money
It’s the 1920s. In a small Yorkshire town, the wily-widow, Rose, entertains the advances of two dubious suitors.
Fuller (Barrie Rutter) 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.
Adapted from Alain-Rene Lesage’s savage eighteenth century comedy Turcaret, Blake Morrison’s For Love or Money is a story of monstrous wealth and whopping lies.
“Hysterically funny… left the audience gagging for more.”
The Guardian on ‘Lisa’s sex strike’
“Richly vivid and comic.”
