The Country Wife Pay What You Can Preview Performance @ Klein Theatre

*This is a Pay What You Can Preview Performance. Patrons pay whatever they wish for each ticket. Tickets available one hour before performance.

Infamous schemer and lascivious playboy Harry Horner seems no longer a threat to the marriages of London as word of his impotence spreads throughout society. Having instigated the rumor himself, however, Horner mischievously embarks on a plan to seduce the wives and daughters of the city’s most influential businessmen knowing full well that nary a man in London would suspect his ribald intentions. When the sweet, innocent, and honest Margery Pinchwife becomes smitten with him, Horner’s charades take an unforeseen tumble. The Country Wife is the quintessential Restoration comedy laced with extraordinary wit, saucy innuendo, and bawdy intrigue.

“. . . alluring both to the eye and to the ear.” –The Manchester Review
