Restoration comedy at its most titillating, The Country Wife delights with its corkscrew plot as Pinchwife and his artless wife Margery are seduced by the machinations of London society. When the philandering Horner sets his sights on the naïve Margery, Pinchwife’s efforts to preserve his wife’s honor spin wildly out of control. Wycherley’s play is a scintillating blend of sparkling wit and sexual intrigue, in which the games of polite seduction are won, marvelously, by London’s ladies.
