Abstract

120 Restoration 43.1 Shakespeare, William. The Life and Death of King John . Edited by Barbara A. Mowat and Paul Werstine. Folger Shakespeare Library. New York: Washington Square Press, 2006. Kindle. The Double Dealer . By William Congreve. Directed by Selina Cadell. Orange Tree Theatre. December 7, 2018–January 26, 2019. Going by the number of recent productions on both sides of the Atlantic, we appear to be living through, if not quite a golden age, then at least a glittering moment of enthu- siasm for Restoration drama, especially the comedies. This is due in no small part to Se - lina Cadell and her directorial efforts with the plays of William Congreve. A superb high comedy actor in her own right, to date Cadell has tackled two of Congreve’s best-known and most accomplished works: Love for Love (The Swan, Stratford, 2007) and The Way of the World (Theatre Royal, Northampton, 2015), and both received their share of critical acclaim. Her latest offering, The Double Dealer at the Orange Tree Theatre in Richmond, London, continues the trend. In this latest foray, Cadell and her cast of actors offer up a masterclass in Restoration comic performance, veering between the twin poles
