Often called the best comedy of manners in English, and one of the most produced of all theatre classics, this delightful play brilliantly displays Sheridan's mastery of the mechanics of stage comedy, his flair for witty dialogue, and his obvious delight in skewering the affectation and pretentiousness of aristocratic Londoners of the 1770s.
