The Country Wifeby William Wycherley
Synopses & Reviews
A new contemporary version of William Wycherley’s most famous classic by Tanika Gupta, one of Britain’s leading playwrights. Following Hardeep’s return to London, he begins broadcasting his newly invented celibate state in a bid to attract women. With this deception more than successful, he turns to the naïve country wife, Preethi, to settle some unfinished business between old friends.
A contemporary version of one of the best-loved Restoration comedies.
