by Hannah Cowley

See! A charming rogue hoist on his own petard!
Cheer! As the confusion sowed plays out in surprising ways!
Watch! A young lady plot…and win!

The Belle’s Stratagem, reimagined into the 1960s, is a hilarious tale of
manners. Where love does – eventually – conquer all. Follow a couple promised to each other in their youth, and a couple from different social circles recently married. Over the course of two days let’s see what trouble they can get into…and out of.
