The Man of Mode
Caplan Studio TheaterThe Man of Mode, is a comedy by George Etherege that satirizes the behavior of the libertines, courtiers, and wits of London during the seventeenth century. It is the fashionable world of theatricals, parks, drawing rooms, and bed chambers, of people who can sleep through the morning, of masks, flirtations, stylish clothing, and sexual intrigues that returned to London after the fall of the Commonwealth. The characters indulge in an idle and libertine life, while pretense seems to spread all over the community. Men pretend to wit and women pretend to virtue. As Harold Love suggested, Restoration Comedy foregrounds “the tyranny of the passion and the fragility of pretension”.
