See All Formats & Editions

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. Publisher's Note.

From the Publisher

“The quintessential creation about people blabbering about people. Here is sham, snobbery and betrayal in full regalia. Yet it is suffused with true elegance. Even sentiment peers through. Language glitters and characters effervesce.” —The New York Times
