Presented in conjunction with the biennial meeting of the Aphra Behn and Frances Burney Societies hosted by Auburn University, The Belle’s Stratagem is an 18th century comedy of manners, mishaps, and mistaken identities that places the female experience front and center. You are invited to accompany Letitia Hardy, her friends, enemies, and acquaintances, to a masked ball where plots will be hatched, jokes cracked, dances danced, and customs turned on their ear.
