"Everything in the world is about sex, except sex. Sex is about power." Oscar Wilde

With this original adaptation, Morphic Graffiti thrust William Wycherley’s The Country Wife into the excesses and seductions of late 1920’s London: a city exploding with a heavy mix of jazz, gin and scandalous affairs.

Renowned playboy, Harry Horner, has made it known in the society pages that he is now impotent. For the jealous husbands, this cunning lothario is neither a threat to their wives nor their reputations.

Meanwhile, business brings the newly married Jack Pinchwife to the city with his much younger wife Margery in tow. Dazzled by everything laid out in front of her, Margery is determined to savour it all, regardless of the consequences.

This is the Twenties, the ladies are now very much on top and they alone will decide what, and indeed who, comes their way.
