A Restoration Comedy, London 1675


Considered too obscene to be staged in its original form for nearly 200 years, William Wycherley's bawdy comedy tells the tale of Mr. Horner - a notorious rake who spreads the false rumor that he is impotent in order to gain free access to other men's wives. When he meets the young, innocent Margery Pinchwife, the scene is set for scandal.
