The University Theatre at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi will present the festive comedy “The Rover” from Thursday, Nov. 11, through Sunday, Nov. 14, and from Thursday, Nov. 18, through Sunday, Nov. 21, in the Wilson Theatre in the Center for the Arts. Performances are at 8 p.m. with 2 p.m. Sunday matinees.

“The Rover,” written by Aphra Behn, who is considered by many to be the first professional female playwright, is set in the 17th century during carnival time. The plot revolves around three affluent sisters dissatisfied with their destiny, who wander disguised throughout the town in search of tolerable husbands. Virtue and reputation are threatened when they encounter three Englishmen intent on enjoying the greater license of the carnival.

The play, which is directed by Kelly Russell, associate professor of theatre, contains mature themes. Tickets are $10 for adults, $6.50 for students, and $5 TAMUCC students with a SandDollar$ ID. Tickets may be purchased online at or in the Center for Arts box office during the week of the show. For more information, call the University Box Office at 361-825-5800.
