The Constant Wife
The play follows the main character, Constance Middleton. She is the wife of a highly successful doctor in London and is calm, self–possessed and intelligent. However, at the same time, her life is not as perfect as it seems. Her husband is having an affair with Marie–Louise, her best friend, and she knows of it. However, her whole family, including her sister, mother and friends think that she is not aware of it. This then changes when the jealous husband of Marie–Louise confronts her. The play then continues from here on with the wife confronted by her best friend’s husband. She then reacts in a way no one had suspected; she tells her family that she has known about it all along and then shocks them further by showing a total lack of emotion on the affair and on the concept of marriage. What happens next will form the most interesting part of the play.
As one of the foremost examples of a comedy play, it premiered at the Ohio Theatre in Loudonville, Ohio. It starred Ethel Barrymore playing the wife, with C. Aubrey Smith and Mabel Terry–Lewis. It saw many performances on Broadway, which was followed by a tour, which also starred Ethel Barrymore. Ethel Barrymore’s performance in the play is considered as iconic today, so much so that the writer of the play, W. Somerset Maugham, dedicated it to her.
