The Country Wife

Friday 29th September

7.30pm

The Crediton Art Centre's resident drama group, The Brown Paper Bag Theatre Company, performed William Wycherley's 1675 play, The Country Wife, over four nights in Crediton during Januaryto great critical acclaim, and are bringing the show, for one night, to Moretonhampstead Parish Hall.

With a very strong cast, fabulous late 17th century style costumes (elegantly made almost entirely from Charity Shop curtain material), and dance tunes of the time from a string and wind quartet, director Julian Wild has created a fast-paced and very funny interpretation of Wycherley's satirical portrait of sex, love and marriage in the decadent Restoration era.

Beautifully written, very funny and sharply clever in its psychological portrayals, the play has three plot strands interwoven with, at it's heart, a lie that, by constant repetition, spreads out through society and becomes the accepted truth, as many people become affected by it. A remarkably contemporary theme!
