- KurzbeschreibungComedy of manners principally is a style of comedy that reflects the life, manners, and customs of sophisticated upper class; yet the genre does not aim to correct the follies and corruption in a given society but just to demonstrate it to produce laughter. For that reason, comedy of manners was not considered as a representative of political theatre until the post-war period. However, after the Second World War, British playwrights, Harold Pinter and Joe Orton, changed the conventional structure and the aim of the genre and produced more political plays by foregrounding the lower and middle-class life distinct from the previous examples. Therefore, this work aims to examine the history and the development of comedy of manners in British theatre throughout centuries, from the ancient world to the post-war Britain, and to analyse its political position and attitude in the post-war period by analysing The Homecoming by Harold Pinter and What the Butler Saw by Joe Orton.
