THE COUNTRY WIFE

​10th-14th July 2012, New Wimbledon Studio Theatre, Directed by Claire Hoult

Harry Horner (the clue’s in the name) feigns impotence in order to get his wicked way with the ‘respectable’ ladies of town. Meanwhile, Jack Pinchwife is driving himself mad with jealousy and at the same time giving his young country wife all sorts of deliciously saucy ideas.  And to complete this Restoration battle of the sexes, the virtuous Alithea is engaged to Sparkish, an over-dressed twit with an inflated idea of his own wit and no idea how to deal with women. With enough double entendres to make a Carry On film blush sexual politics have never been so saucy.
