NEW SEASON

 

 

THE PROVOKED WIFE by JOHN VANBRUGH

5 - 23 September

Tuesday - Saturday 7.45pm £15 & £12 concs

 

"Marriage is a slippery thing…”

 

Presented by Marooned Theatre, Vanbrugh’s 1697 comedy is relocated to a modern music festival where revellers

drink, dance and get up to mischief. The Provoked Wife comes to the Hope Theatre after a sell-out summer run at the White Bear Theatre.  Sir John Brute has only been married two years and he’s already sick of it; nothing but drinking can ease the burden. The marriage is equally tedious for his wife, Lady

Brute. Temptation arrives in the form of a young man and Lady Brute decides to liven up her love life. But when the scheming Lady Fanciful gets wind of it, she means to expose the scandal no matter the cost. Champagne is popped and secret loves revealed, but whether all will end happily is

anyone’s guess.

 

This is Restoration for a new generation.
