1763 The Jealous Wife: A Comedy
What Our Customers Say...
Early Edition, Leather Binding, Rebound
The third edition of George Colman the Elder's humorous play, first published in 1761.
First performed in 1761, and running for nineteen performances in its first season, Colman's play has been noted as indebted to Henry Fielding's 'Tom Jones' for a number of its characters and scenes.
David Garrick has been recognised as helping Colman to work on the draft of this play, and cut down its length.
