Our Betters

If this play were a personal ad, it would read: rich American women in search of nobility seeking poor British men with titles – a forerunner of Downton Abbey? When American Bessie Saunders comes to London, she is thrust into the world of women of wealth and men of status. The games, the lies, the affairs – what she hears and witnesses, particularly in the garden house of her older sister Pearl, is a mercilessly funny look at Europe’s smart set. Sexy, stylish, provocative and very funny – writer and critic Graham Greene called it “the best social comedy of this century.”
