The Second Mrs Tanqueray

Arthur Wing Pinero


When Aubrey Tanqueray marries for the second time, he knows that his new wife, Paula, is a ‘woman with a past’. But he has no idea how that past will catch up with himin the end.

More probing than Oscar Wilde, more accessible than Ibsen, Pinero’s The Second Mrs Tanqueray (1893) is one of the masterpieces of the Victorian theatre: sexy, dramatic, funny and very moving.
