  • RESTORATION COMEDY REVISITED!

  • The Theatre Guild’s 80th Anniversary Season begins with a fresh look at William Congreve's The Way of the World, last produced by the Guild in 1980 in Union Hall.  Thirty eight years later, we revisit Congreve's witty text, this time as a staged play reading in the Little Theatre.

  • With its cast of rakes, fops, aristocrats and spiteful women, The Way of the World is widely acknowledged as one of the finest Restoration comedies. 

  • Mirabell and Millamant wish to marry but need the consent of Millamant's aunt, Lady Wishfort, in order to receive her full dowry.  But therein lies the problem, for Mirabell has grossly slighted the old lady by pretending to be enamoured of her in order to gain access to Millamant.  To further complicate matters, Millamant has a clique of devoted followers whilst Mirabell has more than a few enemies. And so the fun begins in this delightful comedy of manners.

  • Congreve's writing, finely wrought and deliciously witty, charms the senses as it explores the intoxicating themes of sex, money, relationships and social status.  His way of the world offers a tantalising glimpse at the glitteringly amoral world of Restoration Comedy.

  • "If I continue to endure you a little longer,
    I may by degrees dwindle into a Wife."

  • Cast: Laura Antoniazzi, Matthew Chapman, Geoff Dawes, Katherine Edmond, Phil Grummet, Rose Harvey, Brian Knott, Simon Lancione, Roland Lever, Philip Lineton, Ben McCann, Nima Namjouyan, Emma O'Connell-Doherty, Christine Runnel, April Slomiany, Camilla Wolfe-Barry and Danii Zappia.
