A Comedy of Manners…With No Manners at All

Mae is a selfless, sweet-natured woman with just a little baggage—a $600 million inheritance. When her womanizing boyfriend Henry has an affair with her protective aunt, it all hits a little too close to home. Both women become the object of ridicule and scandal—but Henry has a plan to win the heiress back. In the lush and opulent land of the Hamptons’ one-percenters, where money and status determine everything, can love conquer all? Freely adapted from William Congreve’s classic play, The Way of the World is a hilarious and modern look at the absurdity and foibles of the upper-class by Theresa Rebeck (TV's "Smash" and Broadway's Mauritus and Seminar).
