The plays of Vanbrugh and Farquhar effectively herald the end of the great period of post-Restoration comedy. Both writers, in their different ways, reflect the larger changes that British society was undergoing as it began to define a modern world. In this study of the two playwrights, Vanbrugh and Farquhar, their work is located both in the context of their own times and in the larger history of theatrical production.
