By William Congreve

Mellefont and Cynthia love each other. Their families approve of the match. The wedding is in fourteen hours. What could possibly go wrong? Everything, if Mellefont’s scheming aunt, Lady Touchwood, and her duplicitous lover Maskwell have their way. In one fateful evening, a gallery in the Touchwood mansion becomes the stage for William Congreve’s delicious satire of marriage, sex, and money.

Recorded on Zoom in a single afternoon, this one-shot table read of THE DOUBLE DEALER features actors from across North America.
