From the Red Bull website:
The missing link between Sheridan and Wilde, Fanny Burney’s rarely seen proto-feminist satire is a hilarious story of broken engagements, excessive romanticism - and one massively misguided misogynist.
Sir Roderick, has turned frantic misogynist for two reasons: he was jilted 17 years previously and his sister had the gall to marry his ex-fiancee's brother. From there Fanny Burney's outrageously witty comedy of manners bursts into life with the introduction of the former fiancee, Lady Smatter, who has turned into a voracious and brain-addled bookworm. With its unforgettable characters and delicious absurdity, The Woman Hater is a lost comic treat.
The OBIE Award-Winning Revelation Readings series provides a unique opportunity to hear rarely-produced classic plays performed by many of the finest actors in New York.
