Naked in the Fountain
The original text
Described by Geoffery Tansley in his review in the Cape Times as "...a well thought out comedy in two scenes in which two husbands are at ﬁrst outraged by the conduct of their wives, who, on impulse in the one case and in order to assert herself in the other, exhibit more of their charms than their spouses think right and proper. Later the men are forced to take a more modern view."
