A play by

The Wild Goose Chase is a late Jacobean stage play, a comedy written by John Fletcher, first published in 1652. It is often classed among Fletcher’s most effective and best-constructed plays; Edmund Gosse called it “one of the brightest and most coherent of Fletcher’s comedies, a play which it is impossible to read and not be in a good humour.” The drama’s wit, sparkle, and urbanity anticipated and influenced the Restoration comedy of the later decades of the seventeenth century.
