Sir John Vanbrugh's 17th-century masterpiece, The Provoked Wife, skewers lousy marriages and the ways we deal with them with a sarcastic wit as fresh-seeming as it was when the comedy premiered over 300 years ago. In this energetic production by Generation Theatre, duels, drunken escapades and cross-dressing cuckolds abound as Lady Brute deals with the antics of her oafish husband -- and with the advances of the dashing Constant. It's all part of a lesson that, centuries later, we have yet to learn: Don't provoke your wife. Learn More

A thought-provoking text, expertly interpreted, BooKKeepers transports us to immediate pre-war Berlin, in the grip of Nazi rule. After the war, the surviving characters are given a chance to account for their actions, and to pass their story on to the next generation. You cannot watch this play without reflecting on parallels of opporession and control throughout the world and through time (including our own country and time).
K (ostensibly Kafka), with his emotions and moods, Madame Paulus, with her ironic delivery ("I was no more of a Nazi than the next woman."), and Madame Paulus' younger self in Berlin, with her airs and her ambivalence, are stand-outs in a strong cast.

This was an amazing play! Dark, thought provoking and well played. The whole cast was deep and well rehearsed, you feel drawn in immediately! The timely excerpts from the penal colony are wonderful and the "officer" is fantastically portrayed!
Featuring: Charles Keen, Martha Luehrmann, Nastassia Maltsava, Shawn Morgan, Nathan Putnam, Andrea Satin, Alejandro Torres, Ket Watters and Christopher Weddle.
