Dame Evlyn Laye in My Fair Lady Sir George Etherege was born in 1635 and died in May of 1692. During his lifetime Etherege was a great playwright during the Restoration Period of English Literature. He was creator of the Comedy of Manners; a style of play which made fun of the trends and manners of the High society of his time. His first play, "The Comical Revenge or Love in a Tub", was performed in 1664. More plays followed; the last being "The Man of Mode of Sir Fopling Flutter", performed in 1676. Etherege's style was so popular mainly because of the individuality and realism of his characters and plots, which he took from the lives he saw around him. [AL] {EB}
