Often called the best comedy of manners in English, and one of the most produced of all theater classics, this delightful play displays Sheridan's mastery of the mechanics of stage comedy, his flair for witty dialogue, and his delight in skewering the affectation and pretentiousness of aristocratic Londoners of the 1770s.

A favorite with audiences and critics alike since its premiere in 1777, this play is a classic English comedy of manners. Full of satirical wit, it subverts the Georgian social mores of its day with subtlety and charm.
