The Mad Bid

THE MAD BID by Madame Ulrich, newly translated by Rebecca Maxfield, a play reading.

Meet the most popular man in Paris: he’s hot, he’s rich, he’s stylish, and he doesn’t exist.

“He” is Angélique, in disguise to court Madame Argante, who has refused to let her son Éraste and Angélique get married. It’s go time: before the end of the day, the young couple will have enlisted a bunch of other people in increasingly ridiculous disguises, plus a whole lot of money, for true love to come out on top.

Head Trick Theatre is a performing group based in Providence, RI that puts on innovative productions of classic plays with a focus on the importance of liveness.

This play reading is part of our outdoor event series. All events will be held on the front patio. In the case of rain, events will move indoors.
