  6. Roomers

    Roomers

    Product Code: RC7000

    • Comedy | Farce
    • Middle School | High School | College
    • 5m., 9w.
    • 40 min.
    Roomers is a play in which madness rules with no hint of underlying black comedy or horror. The people of this comedy are fresh, creative and unpredictable. From the avaricious landlady who rents the pantry as a bedroom—so what if the bed has to be leaned against the wall—to the man on the roof trying to develop homing vultures, this is a rooming house filled with a wild assortment of characters. Each has his own problems, most of them weird and unsolvable, and the plot is involved with trying to solve them. In short, Roomers is fun. Learn More

    Tom, the illegitimate ward of Squire Allworthy, is in love with his beautiful neighbor, Sophia. Although Sophia's father admires and envies Tom for his reputation as a brawling, womanizing, thieving daredevil, he wouldn't consider allowing his daughter to marry such a scoundrel. Instead, Sophia is betrothed to Blifil, Allworthy's sniveling heir. Since Tom is seduced by most of the women and nearly murdered by all of the men, it's not surprising to find him on the gallows at the end of this fast-paced comedy. Learn More
