The Schemings of Scapin'
Reynolds Tavern, 7 Church Circle
Join Historic Annapolis and the Annapolis Shakespeare Company in the Courtyard of Reynolds Tavern for a hilarious performance of The Schemings of Scapin. Written by French playwright Molière, and originally performed in 1671, this quick-witted comedy, recounts the story of a conniving servant, Scapin, and the two well-to-do fathers whose money Scapin swindles. With drinks and light hors d’ouvers included in the price, this will certainly be an evening full of merriment and laughter. Funds raised from this event will support the Historic Annapolis Intern Program.
