An eighteenth century romantic parlor comedy in an eighteenth century parlor. A lying philandering husband, a clever wife, and a trap for him to see the error in his ways. Simple, timeless, and fun all the while being pleasantly unremarkable. The original text is remarkably cliched with its dated humor, with character names such as Sir Brilliant Fashion (for the record, the performance of Sir Brilliant Fashion was one of the saving graces of the show) for example, it feels a bit too past its prime. The performances are very middle of the road and naturalistic, rather than keying into the jabs at period classism and exploitation of titles. In essence, the humor in the text can be rather over the top, and one would hope that the cast would utilise that, but the laughs, as presented, are too weak and too few.
