Fragile Land

    By

    This new version of William Wycherley 's most famous classic, The Country Wife has been adapted by Tanika Gupta, one of the country 's leading playwrights. This contemporary farce tells the story of twenty-something friends and rivals on their journey through love and liberation.


    Following Hardeep 's return to London he begins broadcasting his newly invented celibate state in a bid to attract women keen to reignite his passion for them. With this deception more than successful his endeavours turn to the naive country wife, Preethi, Alok's virgin bride to settle unfinished business between old friends. A fast paced comedy laced with deception, disguise and lustful behaviour brought about by double standards, adultery and promiscuous living.


    Country Wife was performed at the Watford Palace theatre in October 2004
