Classic Radio Theatre: The Country Wife (Dramatised)

Maggie Smith and Jonathan Pryce star in William Wycherley's raunchy Restoration comedy. Considered too obscene to be staged in its original form for nearly 200 years, William Wycherley's bawdy comedy tells the tale of Mr Horner, a notorious rake who spreads the false rumour that he is impotent in order to gain free access to other men's wives. When he meets the young, innocent Margery Pinchwife, the 'country wife' of the title, the scene is set for scandal.
