About This Event

The Country Wife, comedy of manners in five acts by Restoration dramatist William Wycherley, performed and published in 1675. It satirizes the sexual duplicity of the aristocracy during the reign of Charles II. Popular for its lively characters and its double entendres, the bawdy comedy was occasionally vilified for immorality. The main plot concerns the activities of lusty Margery, a country woman whose jealous husband, Mr. Pinchwife, sequesters her at home to ensure her fidelity. At a rare outing to the theatre she is noticed by Mr. Horner, a notorious rake who starts a false rumour that he is a eunuch in order to gain the confidence of suspicious husbands. Margery soon learns the art of deception, and lies, disguises, and conspiracies thicken the plot.
