The Rover

Roma Street Parkland

The Queensland Shakespeare Ensemble brings Aphra Behn’s brilliant, yet rarely performed, The Rover to Brisbane's Roma Street Parkland from August 19 to September 4, 2022.  

The Rover, Queensland Shakespeare Ensemble

From the pen of England’s first female professional playwright (and sometimes spy), The Rover is a play that scandalized
17th century audiences and continues to ask bold questions about freedom, anonymity, class, and sexual politics.

Two sisters throw themselves into the chaotic streets of Naples during Carnival. One in search of her forbidden true love, the other in search of a good time!

As their paths cross with a band of exiled English Cavaliers, Europe’s most famous Courtesan, and a host of colourful characters, the audience is taken on a thrilling yet dangerous ride full of music, revelry, and masquerades.

“The banished cavaliers! A roving blade!
A popish carnival! A masquerade!”

Queensland Shakespeare Ensemble is a valued partner of Must Do
