The Provoked Wife Opens Friday, Mar 3!

Come and enjoy our raucously riotous, and raggedly riveting Restoration Comedy!

The hitherto virtuous Lady Brute is provoked to find companionship with the caddish, Constant, by her sour, sottish husband. Married in haste – she for money, he for lust – the Brutes are shackled by wedlock but looking for diversions. He goes off for a drunken night on the town and ends up before a magistrate, disguised in his wife’s frock.

Set in the 17th century but infused with the flavor of the 1980s, this Restoration comedy explores how wit and gossip informed relationships and “the chase” of the time period.

Our production has it all – wigs, period costumes, 80s music, sword fighting, and general frivolity! It’s educational theatre at its best and promises to entertain your socks off.

We have an invited dress (donations appreciated) on March 2 at 6pm

We then run March 3,4,9,10,11 all at 7pm.
