A Comedy of Manners…With No Manners at All

Mae is a sweet-natured woman with just a little baggage—a $600 million inheritance. When her womanizing boyfriend Henry dallies with her protective aunt, the world seems too much with her. Both women become the object of ridicule and scandal—but Henry has a plan to win the heiress back. In the lush and opulent land of the Hampton’s 1%, where money and status determine everything, can love conquer all? Freely adapted from William Congreve’s classic play, The Way of the World is a sparklingly witty physical comedy illuminating the foibles of the upper-class.
