Newly arrived in town - with his ‘country wife’ Margery - Jack Pinchwife is jealous to the core and strains to keep his innocent spouse away from Horner’s clutches. She, however, is desperate to savour all the pleasures of the big city. And when Harry finally meets Margery, a collision course is set.
William Wycherley’s subversive comedy of sex and seduction was so scandalous that it was banned for 200 years. It is now brought to sparkling life by Olivier Award-winning director Polly Findlay, whose recent productions include GOOD at the Royal Exchange last Autumn and ANTIGONE at the National Theatre.
