Northern Broadsides present
the world premiere of
A daft comedy about greed

A new adaptation of Lesage’s Turcaret
by Blake Morrison
Directed by Barrie Rutter
Designed by Jessica Worrall
Lighting by Tim Skelly

It’s the 1920s. In a small Yorkshire town, the wily-widow, Rose, entertains the advances of two dubious suitors. Fuller (Barrie Rutter) is a fabulously rich and morally corrupt banker who woos Rose by parading his wealth whilst hiding a few secrets. Handsome Arthur is much younger and deceitful through and through. He plays Rose for as much money as she can take from Fuller.

A love triangle then; a deliciously wicked tale of rivalry and greed.

Throw in a bailiff, a drunkard, a vamp, a second-hand clothes dealer and two upwardly mobile servants, and the complications multiply.

Adapted from Alain-Rene Lesage’s savage eighteenth-century comedy Turcaret, Blake Morrison’s For Love or Money is a story of monstrous wealth and whopping lies.

Northern Broadsides strike comedy gold – The Guardian

Rutter himself is also excellent – The Guardian

For Love or Money is an extremely stylish example of the genre and exceptionally well-acted – Whatsonstage

Sarah-Jane Potts is outstanding– Whatsonstage

Rutter’s energetic production is skilfully stylised, with in-character entrances to a touch of 1920s jazz, and movement is precise and beautifully judged – Whatsonstage

Blake Morrison’s comprehensive Yorkshirisation of an old French satire has melted seamlessly into Northern Broadsides catalogue. – Yorkshire Times

This is a rich, dense piece of writing that is very ‘Yorkshire’. – Yorkshire Times

Highly recommended – Yorkshire Times
