“The Way of the World” by the English playwright William Congreve is considered as one of the best Restoration comedies. It first premiered in March 1700 in the theatre in Lincoln’s Inn Fields.
When the play was first launched, it was not very well received by the audience. However, it is still occasionally performed in the different parts of the world.
Having seen the premier show of the play, the audiences concluded that “The Way of the World” continued the immorality of the previous decades.
