The Provok'd Wife by John Vanbrugh
adapted by Jim Poyser
'What cloying meat is love when matrimony's the sauce to it?' A gloriously outspoken 18th-century comedy of sex, marriage, debauchery and revenge. Restoration comedy at its finest.
Vanbrugh's Restoration comedy is a bawdy romp through the destruction of a marriage and the promise of true love. Julian Rhind-tutt stars as confirmed bachelor Heartfree.
