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

There was something quite remarkable about this event. It had to do with the intensity of the performance, the sincerity with which it was presented and the depth of the emotional pull the story had on the hearts of nearly everyone in the room. I didn't want it to end, and, thank God...! It won't if this little band of players has anything to do with this crazy world in which we live. If you have the chance to see this and don't...regardless of your perspectives on life, love, Jesus or anyone who has been marginilized in life, you'll be doing yourself a huge disservice. ~steveT
