Lucille Lortel Theatre
121 Christopher St (between Hudson & Bleeker Sts) New York, NY 10014

Freely adapted from William Congreve's masterpiece, this contemporary retelling shifts the story to the demi-monde of the hyper-rich Hamptons. Can love emerge in a world where love has no value?


A good-hearted heiress has become prey to the attentions of an amoral party boy. After he callowly seduces her aunt, making the older woman a figure of public ridicule, their romance is dead in the water. But his insistence on winning back the moneyed heroine fuels the summer's gossip in the land of the one-percent.
