Drama Classics: The World’s Great Plays at a Great Little Price
A Restoration Comedy with a real heart and soul.
Captain Plume arrives in Shrewsbury to recruit new soldiers. He falls for Sylvia – against her father’s wishes. Rather than be sent away, Sylvia disguises herself as a man and so learns more about Plume than he would really like.
The Recruiting Officer is a set text for EdExcel Drama GCSE, English Language and Literatue A/AS-Level, and English Literature A/AS-Level; and WJEC Drama Drama & Theatre Studies A/AS-Level.
Edited and introduced by Simon Trussler.
