Starring James Marsters, this classic comedy of manners from 1773 is still widely performed and studied. Love, lies, and dysfunctional families. Sound like your last family gathering? Try this one on for laughs. Two randy young gents, Charles and George, set out to woo the alluring and upper-crust Kate and Constance. But inexperienced Charles is shy and clumsy around upper-class ladies, so it's the barmaid who catches his eye. But is she really who she seems? Bawdy high-jinx, popped pretensions, and good dirty fun are the hallmarks of this romping frolic that's kept audiences laughing for over two centuries.

An L.A. Theatre Works full cast performance featuring (in alphabetical order): Rosalind Ayres as Mrs. Hardcastle; Adam Godley as Tony Lumpkin; Julian Holloway as Elder Marlow/Stingo; James Marsters as Charles Marlow; Christopher Neame as Roger; Paula Jane Newman as Bet Bouncer/Pimple; Ian Ogilvy as Mr. Hardcastle; Moira Quirk as Constance Neville; Darren Richardson as Diggory/Jeremy; Joanne Whalley as Kate Hardcastle; and Matthew Wolf as George Hastings. Directed by Martin Jarvis. Recorded before a live audience at the Skirball Cultural Center, Los Angeles, in June 2010.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Timothy Morrow | 12/5/2013

    " A Slightly entertaining comedic play, the different situations each character got themselves into were funny but not hilarious. The writing was well done but lacked to entrap my attention......Timothy~ "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 liltedlullaby | 12/2/2013

    " Very confusing. I enjoyed it, because I adore resoration language - but it's so hard to keep track of the plot! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen Jen | 11/18/2013

    " This was a quick read. I was in the mood for something light humored to pass the evening. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Scroutch | 11/6/2013

    " More restoration comedy. Predictable plot, characters, etc. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Josh | 11/4/2013

    " Mmmm...moving back and forth between four and five stars on this one. The fifth is for historical importance. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauren | 10/12/2013

    " Cute play. We watched a performance in class that was quite funny! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julia | 9/24/2013

    " Very reminiscent of the time period. My only complaint is that the plot was very simple, and sometimes the one plot line made things very predictable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alan | 9/20/2013

    " read this because my daughter was doing it for 'A' level a couple of years ago. It's quite a clever, fine play but I get a bit fed up with all these mistaken identities, disguises etc, and it takes a Shakespeare to get away with all that stuff fully (for me anyway). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alex | 7/26/2013

    " Humorous and I cared about the characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 4/17/2013

    " My dad lent this book to me as a quick read with a cute story. It was definitely a fast read, and the story was enjoyable if extremely silly. Goldsmith really enjoys writing about ridiculous people (see The Vicar of Wakefield). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Corrie Francis | 4/9/2013

    " Jane Austen meets Oscar Wilde? But I think they didn't quite get along as well as i'd hoped. Still, I was entertained. A good stage performance might improve it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joyce | 12/27/2012

    " It's been so long since I read this, but I do remember liking it quite a bit. Oh dear, time to reread. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah Ryburn | 11/26/2012

    " can't recall where or when i read this play. perhaps at wake forest. i do recall thinking it was marvelous. "

    " To this I adore so much and I am now on the second showing of the screen adaptation, I would read this everyday if I could fit it in, its witty, and its brilliantly written, the setting is amazing I love every character in this book, I would highly recommend it to any avid book reader. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brittany | 3/28/2012

    " Hilarious case of mistaken identity and tale as old as time: love conquers all. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Banan Bakhaidar | 3/25/2012

    " I need to look at the glossary many times; but I enjoy it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda | 12/29/2011

    " I found this to be a delightful, humorous play and would love to see it on stage. The confusion of identities is the key to the humor. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzlizjohnson | 10/14/2011

    " Saw the play at the Art's Club... so funny decided to read the book.... A comedy of manners...and errors! Good example of play with romance, and a bit of satire & bit of farce.... "
