The Way of the World
Considered by many critics the finest of Restoration comedies, 'The Way of the World' is Congreve's masterpiece - a rich and knowing comedy of manners that not only satirizes the falsity, pretense and shallowness of the London society of his day, but offers a depth of feeling, sensitivity and polished phrasing that elevates the play far above other efforts in the genre. Delightfully entertaining, 'The Way of the World' abounds in brilliant word-play, delicius verbal battles of the sexes and scheming villains of both genders.
