Swashbuckling fun from start to finish, this vibrant new adaptation of Farquhar's classic restoration comedy from the masterful minds of Thornton Wilder (Our Town) and Ken Ludwig (Crazy for You) is full of dazzling wordplay, swooning damsels-in-distress and dashing sword-fight rescues. The original wing-man comedy, two young gents tumble head-first into love in ultimate romantic comedy fashion proving 300 years hasn't changed a thing when it comes to love! Wilder and Ludwig's sparkling adaptation infuses Farquhar's tale with enchanting characters, fun and frolic.
