The Country Wife 1991 Directed by Judith Fisher

Wycherley's comedy is an expose of hypocrisy and affectation, delivered with wit and the ability to tell a good story. Horner, belying his name, spread the rumor that he is impotent in order to gain access to the 'honourable' women.  His friend, Pinchwife, had not heard the news and vainly tries to keep his innocent country wife, Margery, out of Horner's clutches.  Horner's well-thought out plan is in danger of being exposed when, at the denouement, all his amorous conquests arrive together at his lodgings with their husbands close behind.
