The Way of the World archiveRestoration comedy. Marriage, money and the battle of the sexes in the classic comedy of manners. Mirabell and Millamant are within an ace of becoming the perfect couple, star players in the game of love, past masters in the art of seduction, each the equal of the other in their glamour and good looks But all that counts for nothing without hard cash. Millamant's inheritance becomes a much-sought after prize in this ingeniously plotted comedy of emotional intrigue and romantic double-bluff. First performed in 1700 Congreve's enduring classic has lost none of its comic perfection and stinging precision.
