A great-value Collection of all the farces of the great dramatist

In The Brute Mrs Popoff, widow of a landowner, has vowed never to remarry and abjures the company of men forever

Then Smirnoff, one of her late husband's creditors, forces himself into her presence

So - they seemed groomed for quarrelling and they do to the point where the anti feminist Smirnoff challenges her to a duel
