Maggie Smith and Jonathan Pryce star in William Wycherley's raunchy Restoration comedy.

Considered too obscene to be staged in its original form for nearly 200 years, William Wycherley's bawdy comedy tells the tale of Mr Horner, a notorious rake who spreads the false rumour that he is impotent in order to gain free access to other men's wives. When he meets the young, innocent Margery Pinchwife, the 'country wife' of the title, the scene is set for scandal.

This sparkling 1985 BBC Radio production stars Maggie Smith as Margery Pinchwife, with an all-star cast including Jonathan Pryce, John Duttine, John Moffatt, Harriet Walter and Michael Aldridge.

The Classic Radio Theatre range presents notable radio productions of much-loved plays by some of the most renowned playwrights, and starring some of our finest actors.

    " Loved this play! Wycherly was ahead of his time with his sexual inuendo's and wit that is even funny today. "

    " (7/10) This play really hammers home one point: in Restoration England, much like high school, all everyone could think about was who was cheating on who. "

    " Again an 18th century commentary on men not being able to fulfill their wives needs and the innocence of the country versus the city wife. Interesting humor and very clever. However, flawed in some areas. "
