Restoration Comedy

Written by Amy Freed

Directed by Karen Libman

March 20 - 29, 2015

Based on comedies of the late 1600s, Loveless, an insatiable womanizer, returns to England after squandering his own fortune. Now he intends to spend his wife’s fortune after he hears she has died. But when Amanda learns that her husband is alive, she begins her plotting. With the help of her husband’s friend, Worthy, she pretends she is a lascivious mistress and tempts her husband into her bed. While the two repair their broken marital bonds, Amanda breaks Worthy’s heart in the process. Following typical restoration comedies that were once banned, the Restoration Comedy characters all chase the joys of love and debauchery.
