'The Country Wife' : St Agnes Players

Whether it be a desire for escapism or just an excuse to gawp at some crazy costumes, William Wycherley’s notorious The Country Wife is a very funny, bladed piece of writing guaranteed to provide a great evening’s entertainment.
This is a bawdy romp in which the notorious playboy, and aptly named, Harry Horner, fakes a case of impotence in order that the local ladies will let their guard down in his presence and he can duly have his wicked way with them.
It’s a world in which a man pretends his wife is a ‘homely, plain girl’ to keep the local womanisers away from her, and a world where the characters’ names are deliciously literal (Horner is insatiably horny, Mr Pinchwife has his wife pinched away from him, Mrs Fidget…well, you get the picture).
Wycherley's wickedly witty restoration comedy cleverly unmasks a corrupt society where reputation is everything.
