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.

Short one, just came home from work and am pretty exhausted, I need some tea and cheering up from the cats! :)

Can you believe that I did spend some time online today looking for plane fares... and trying to check the play's tickets (alas the website was blocked in my office).

So before I come back and reply properly to your comment: Do you plan on going to see the play? Do you have your tickets already? And if so when will you go and see it?
(I'm sure you can guess the purpose of my asking! But of course, it'll all depend on whether the play is already sold out or not... *sighs*)
