Oliver Goldsmith’s 1773 play is still laugh-out-loud funny after all these years. It’s a comedy of manners with romantic entanglements, farce and a host of brilliantly comic characters. Will Charles ever realise that Kate isn’t a barmaid? Can Tony avoid marrying Constance and get his hands on Bet Bouncer? And will Mrs Hardcastle ever stop making a complete idiot of herself?
Recent productions of the play have been called ‘fresh, spirited and blissfully funny’ (The Telegraph), ‘lively and absurd’ (The Stage) and ‘foolish, foppish fun’ (The Guardian).
