Welcome to The Company
The Company is an amateur theatre group with members across Sheffield and South Yorkshire. We have been established for over a decade and have developed a reputation for high quality theatre worthy of the professional stage. We perform three plays a year at The University of Sheffield’s Drama Studio, a renowned intimate theatre venue. Our members are encouraged to give creative input at all stages of production including script writing, set design, stage management, directing and acting.
"When love grows diseased, the best thing we can do is to put it to a violent death. I cannot endure the torture of a lingering and consumptive passion."
Most inappropriately, Dorimant is falling in love.
Dorimant, a wealthy man, sex-hungry socialite who's basic 'job' is to get as many of London's upper class women into his bed as he possibly can.
It's a time-consuming business, because it involves hatching complex plots to fend off one woman whilst trying to acquire the amorous affections of another.
Dorimant, encouraged by his wealthy, charmless chums, is conniving to dump his current love one Mrs Loveit in order to seduce her friend, Belinda.
But it's a tough life for an alpha male on the rampage there always seems to be one more woman to have sex with.
And it's not long before Dorimant's eyes fall on one Harriet Woodvill, though she proves to be something more of a challenge…
The production will run Wednesday 25 – Saturday 28th June 2014 in the Drama Studio Glossop Road doors open at 7pm for a prompt
