Meet us at Studio 77 for a night of dancing, lust, and disco fever. Escape to a world of young lovers, new paramours, starlets, artists and cons. At Carnival, anything goes when the sun seeks to rest. However when the unrestrained cavaliers come to play, how many toes will they step on, and how many hearts will be broken?

The Rover (1677) is an adaptation of Aphra Behn’s proto-feminist Restoration comedy - resituated in an iconic nightclub over one night in 1977. With a narrative exploring distinct ideas of gender and sexuality, the play interweaves three love stories made complex by the spirit of the age, the thrill of the night, and youthful desires for liberation.
