Sir John Brute has only been married two years and he’s already sick of it; nothing but drinking can ease the burden. The marriage is equally tedious for his wife, Lady Brute. Temptation arrives in the form of a young man and Lady Brute decides to liven up her love life. But when the scheming Lady Fanciful gets wind of it, she means to expose the scandal no matter the cost.
Vanbrugh’s 1697 comedy is relocated to a modern music festival where revellers drink, dance and get up to mischief.
