William Congreve wrote this racy farcical comedy full of disguises and misunderstandings. Many Restoration comedies are full of frivolous humor. Not so in this case. The underlying themes of sexual ethics, good government and gender roles are cloaked in catchy dialogue and a well-developed plot. Read full review
