Mr Dorimant, man about town, wants to dump his mistress Mrs Loveit and seduce her best friend.

But there’s a new girl in town and she’s very rich...

Mr Bellair wants to marry the gorgeous Emilia. The trouble is, his father’s after her too.

Mrs Loveit wants Dorimant back, and failing that, she wants revenge.

Sir Fopling Flutter, newly back from France, wants to be the centre of attention.

Sir George Etherege’s hard and brilliant Restoration comedy is given an 80s makeover – a world of synth pop and clubbing, where greed is good, fashion is god, and hearts are there for breaking.
