Cut and pasted from the Guardian website:
Restoration comedy The Recruiting Officer by Irish playwright George Farquhar was the first play ever to be staged in Australia, by convicts of the First Fleet in 1789. It now notches up another first, being the inaugural production by the Donmar Warehouse's new artistic director, Josie Rourke. Combining strategies both military and sexual, it follows the exploits of the womanising Captain Plume as he scours Shrewsbury for army recruits, and attempts to bed heiress Sylvia; and of cowardly Captain Brazen as he too is toyed with by a scheming minx. Rourke's cast includes Mark Gatiss, Rachael Stirling and Mackenzie Crook.
Previews started today and run until Monday 13 February; Press Night is on Tuesday 14 February.
