A young rake sexually plunders and pillages his way through London leaving a dozen angry cuckolds in his wake First performed in 1681, The London Cuckolds was written by Edward Ravenscroft. Three centuries later, Terry Johnson's frank and fruity adaptation proves this seminal comedy to be a precursor to modern farce. The London Cuckolds premiered at the Royal National Theatre in February 1998."Terry Johnson is that rare creature: a moralist with wit. He writes with responsible gaiety" (Guardian)
