The Virtuoso

The Virtuoso is by Thomas Shadwell. The classic Restoration comedy satirizing the proponents of New Science in the seventeenth century. Sir Nicholas is constantly conducting "important" scientific experiments. Two of his followers, Bruce and Longvil are really after his nieces. A wonderful example of the drama of the era.

Ratings: 12th grade - 9 out of 10 - P (profanity) - AC (mature thematic content).
