Shadwell's Restoration Comedy: A Play in Three Acts

Shadwell's Restoration Comedy: A Play in Three Acts


Thomas Shadwell (1642-1692) wrote a number of comic plays during his life.

His work is essentially plotless, but reeks with the odor of real people. Frank J. Morlock has created a composite drama (with plot!)...   [click here for more]
