Lady Brute and Sir John have been married for two years. To him, it feels like a lifetime. To her, a life sentence. But will she accept the advances of a potential lover? John Vanbrugh’s hilarious play takes a witty look at marriage, courtship and temptation. From the drunken antics of the ale-house to the heart of fashionable London, this is a production not to be missed.
