This new "Drama Classics" edition, prepared by Trevor Griffiths of the University of North London, is published alongside a high-profile revival of "The Man of Mode" at the National Theatre, staged by the Artisitic Director, Nicholas Hytner, in February 2007. Casting, yet to be announced, is bound to be stellar...

About Author

Sir George Etherege (1636-92) was born in Maidenhead, went to Cambridge, possibly had a child by the actress Elizabeth Barry, wrote the first Restoration Comedy (The Comical Revenge, 1664), became a career diplomat, was knighted in 1679 and died in Paris. Playwriting was very much merely a hobby.
