The Country Wife
by William Wycherley

The Country Wife

Ludlow Brewery
Theatre Severn, Shrewsbury
June 2017

Our first Restoration Comedy was a wonderful journey of discovery with the glorious language, characterisation, and - in a first for us - lavish costumes. Audiences came during the hottest two weeks of summer and we sold out seven of the eight performances at the Brewery. We then premiered at Theatre Severn Shrewsbury performing to 165 people in their lovely Walker Theatre - a very exciting new experience.

“An extremely lively and fun production of The Country Wife with enough energy to power the town for a week.”

“Fabulous performance, absolute riot! Typical of genre and brilliantly performed!”

“The acting was excellent from the whole cast and the direction faultless, as ever, from Messrs Bolton and Sayers.”
