Restoration Classic. Reimagined.

The Provoked Wife

BY john Vanbrugh


'The Provoked Wife' tells the outrageous story of one woman’s quest to show an inattentive husband what he’s missing.

Go People’s snappily-cut 90 minute production distills the best of Vanbrugh’s 1697 original play, pushing his fabulously funny narrative to the foreground and keeping his deliciously drawn characters firing on all cylinders. Sexy, silly and sumptuous, this is a truly contemporary interpretation of a restoration classic.

Performed at: 

Home House

The Club at the Ivy

Hoxton Holborn Hotel

The Church at St Giles
