Wild Oats by John O'Keeffe
O’Keeffe’s riotous 18th century comedy lampoons nearly every prominent Restoration play and makes copious use of Shakespearean quotations and allusions as the play’s characters work at cross purposes to each other. But the upshot of the action is the triumph of kindness, optimism and decency. Bernard Levin writes in London’s Sunday Times that “anybody who does not enjoy himself at [this play] must be dead, and indeed to a considerable extent decomposed.”
