The Recuriting Officer - by James Kerr

"A splendid new production of George Farquar´s the Recruiting Officer.".

Sunday Times:

"Kerr stresses the weariness of the soldiers sent to cozen fresh cannon fodder for England’s European wars from the dregs of the town. Equally he stresses the financial calculations and contractual considerations. It is an interesting reading and a challenge."
