John Vanbrugh (1664-1726), one of the principal Restoration dramatists, is best known for comedies that capture the hilarious idiosyncrasies and unique subject matter of marital discord. This collection contains five of his most rollicking comedies on marital disharmony, edited to the high standard of the Oxford English Drama series in modernized spelling and including full notes and glossary. In addition to his most famous plays,The Relapse and The Provoked Wife, the collection also includesThe Confederacy, A Journey to London, and The Country House. There is a critical introduction, wide-ranging annotation, and an informative bibliography which together illuminate the plays' cultural context and theatrical potential.

The only selection of Vanbrugh's plays currently in print, this book is ideal for readers, performers and students alike.
