Featuring witty repartee in the grand tradition of The Country Wife and The Beaux’ Stratagem, Congreve’s delicious comedy of manners sends up courtship and marriage. Amid the gossip and frivolous love affairs of fashionable London society, the clever and conniving lovers Millamant and Mirabell are determined to pursue “a marriage of true minds.” But Millamant’s jealous guardian stands in their way. The only way to achieve their goal is to beat the fops, the fools and the resentful rivals at their own game—through double-dealing and outrageous deception. Michael Kahn directs this great English comedy, one of the finest of the Restoration era. The cast features Veanne Cox and Christopher Innvar (The Beaux’ Stratagem) as well as STC favorites Floyd King, Andrew Long and Nancy Robinette.
