Based upon Wycherley's The Country Wife, this rollicking Restoration revel throws off the shackles of Puritan austerity in a high-spirited celebration of "the noblest urge bestowed on us". Ribaldry, romance and drama abound in the hilarious tale of Homer, a notorious London libertine. He charms and seduces his way into the hearts and boudoirs of society ladies, while practising elaborate deceptions so as to be trusted by the foolish husbands as a eunuch and chaperon to ladies of quality. Period 1661.
