When Aubrey Tanqueray marries for the second time, he knows that his new wife, Paula, is a ‘woman with a past’. But he has no idea how that past will catch up with him. More probing than Oscar Wilde, more accessible than Ibsen, Pinero’s 1893 play is one of the masterpieces of the Victorian theatre: sexy, dramatic, funny, and moving.
