Marcell plays suspicious husband Sir Peter Teazle in this fresh take on Sheridan’s now rarely-performed classic comedy of British manners. Sir Peter believes his young wife is sleeping with someone else. She isn’t - but she’s starting to think if her husband believes it, she may as well give it a go...
