Spain and Portugal, the two great global powers, have signed a treaty dividing the entire world between the slave-trading Portuguese empire and the Spanish empire, which has outlawed slavery.

This classic comedy of manners tells of the clever schemes and comic ruses that unfold one night at a country house.

In its day, this eighteenth century masterpiece was considered so 'low' that it might never have reached the stage. When it was finally produced, it enjoyed immediate and lasting success, breaking the mould with its satirical swipe at polite society
