“Banned for 170 years because of its licentious plot and language so bawdy it would have made Shakespeare blush.”

The Univ Players

SUMMARY

The title character, a young, sexually ripe naïf, is seduced by the profane charms of city life, much to the consternation of her jealous middle-aged husband. The object of her affections is Horner, a libertine gentleman who has spread a rumor that he's become impotent, so as to be trusted alone with London's desperate housewives. Meanwhile Horner's pal Harcourt falls in love with the principled Alithea, who is, alas, betrothed to the outrageously foppish Sparkish.
