Gulfshore Playhouse, Naples’ premier professional regional theatre will present the Florida premiere of “The Lady Demands Satisfaction.” The comedy by Arthur M. Jolly will be on stage Feb. 15 to March 15 with previews on Feb. 13 and 14.
Dubbed by Hooligan Magazine as “a two-hour soundscape of belly laughter, metal on metal and whatever the sound of pure ‘heckin joy is,” “The Lady Demands Satisfaction” is a comedy of manners.
Directed by Broadway star at Gulfshore Playhouse Associate Artistic Director Jeffrey Binder, the show tells the comedic tale of hapless heiress Trothe as she comes of age. After the untimely death of her noble father, Trothe learns that she could lose her inheritance if someone beats her in a duel. The only problem? Trothe has never laid so much as a finger on a sword. Her domineering aunt, clever servants, bumbling lawyer and Prussian swordmaster all add to the chaos and mayhem in this hilarious, swashbuckling spoof of 18th-century nobility.
