"A decadent 18th-century treat... an energetic bedroom comedy romp, one that has not been dimmed through the lens of the modern era." —Gillian Daniels, reviewer of The Way of the World performance on December 4, 2012.

Regarded as one of the greatest comedies of England's Restoration Period, The Way of the World tells the story of Mirabell and Millamant, two lovers seeking marriage against the wishes of the latter's aunt, Lady Wishfort. Knowing that they will not receive Millamant's full dowry, the lovers go to enormous lengths to secure their inheritance and vindicate their love. A scathing satire that has thrilled audiences since its premiere in 1700, The Way of the World remains a timeless parody on love, happiness and material gain.

Written by William Congreve.

Directed by Christopher Webb.
