The Double Dealer: a comedy, is a fast-paced spectacle of extravagant costumes and outrageous behavior. It features a resourceful villain, love, marriage, and adulterous relationships, proving that life in high society of the 1690s was anything but boring.

Machiavellian treachery and romantic knavery are centre stage when Maskwell, plotting to marry into money, joins forces with Lady Touchwood to break up the match between the innocent lovers Cynthia and Mellefont. Cheating wives, jealous husbands, conniving rivals and foolish fops make for a witty comedy of manners where no one but the two young betrothed is what he or she seems.

“Tho’ marriage makes man and wife one flesh, it leaves ‘em still two fools.” – William Congreve, The Double Dealer
