The Fair Maid of the Exchange
*five performances only*
by Anonymous (possibly Thomas Heywood)
MARCH 22 - APRIL 3, 2017
Everybody loves the fair maid, Phillis — or maybe it’s just the three smitten Golding brothers. Anthony,
Ferdinand, and Frank must battle it out to win her love, and they’re not above underhanded tricks and disguises to get her attention. This wickedly witty city comedy pits brother against brother, and shows even in sibling rivalries, somebody has to come out on top.

ASC veteran actor René Thornton, Jr. steps into the director/manager chair like Peter Quince in Midsummer to lead the troupe in reviving this show for (we think) the first time in over 400 years.

Special thanks to Genevieve Love for graciously sharing her edition of The Fair Maid of the Exchange, which will be published in 2019 in the Routledge Anthology of Early Modern Drama.
