About this show

Brimming with sharp and elegant wit, The Way of the World, which critics largely consider the greatest of the Restoration comedies, pits a pair of lovers against a host of manipulative characters, including the underhanded (and unhappily aging) Lady Wishfort and the villainous Fainall. Rife with satire, this scathing comedy uncovers the over-the-top inner workings of the idle upper class.
