  The Provoked Wife by John Vanbrugh is given a production that it truly deserves at the RSC, pivoting cleverly between disgust with human mendacity and sympathy for the pain of the human situations that causes it, between the famously riotous lewdness associated with this type of play and a truly insightful and sensitive examination of sexual morals and problems of its characters.4/5. THE PROVOKED WIFE. By John Vanbrugh. Directed by Phillip Breen. Swan Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon. 2 May to 7 Sep Rufus Hound will return to the RSC company as Constant alongside Les Dennis who will make his RSC debut as Colonel Bully in Phillip Breen’s riotous new production of the outspoken restoration romp that shocked 17 th century society. They join the previously announced.

Sir John Vanbrugh’s second comedy is an outspoken portrayal of sex, marriage, temptation and revenge in the 18th century. Lady Brute, the provoked wife, is hell bent on escaping the clutches of her brutish, gambling, drunken husband – a task that is becoming more and more attractive as she is pursued by the handsome young gentleman, Constant.

Lincoln, University of Nebraska Press [©] (OCoLC) Get this from a library. The Provoked Wife. [John Vanbrugh] -- In this late Restoration comedy Vanbrugh not only pushes the unhappily married couple, which had been good for no more than a raucous subplot in earlier comedies of manners, centre-stage - he also.

Phillip Breen’s lively revival of John Vanburgh’s Restoration romp, The Provoked Wife, for the Royal Shakespeare Company, has glorious parts for both Caroline Quentin and Alexandra Gilbreath.

Quentin’s comedy credentials come into their own with the grotesque, narcissistic egomaniac that is the frightful Lady Fancyfull while the husky-voiced Gilbreath creates both an admirably winsome. With comedy stars a-plenty in the likes of Caroline Quentin, Rufus Hound and Les Dennis, a theatre-goer could be forgiven for expecting an hilarious restoration comedy in John Vanbrugh’s The Provoked r, although plenty of laughs and foolishness are afoot throughout, the play is much deeper and sinister than that, playing out women’s suffering in patriarchal 17 th-century society.
