Penned in 1948, this verse play, set in the 19th century, is a language lover's dream. Fry's creation of a piece that harkens back to the dramatic form and verse style of early Elizabethan drama, poses existential questions that are all resoundingly modern, but are presented by characters from almost five centuries ago.This odd romantic comedy has vbeen celebrated for its witty, brilliant linguistic "pyrotechnics", and it's a play we are considering for futur production. We would love your feedback!
