Johan Johan the Husband
The jealous husband John John defends his practice of wife beating, while the lascivious Sir John seduces the suspicious man’s wife with a pie. Tyb brings home her baked good to share with the curate, which results in a drama-filled dinner party, filled with stories of dubious pregnancies attributed to miraculous conception!
The Society’s edition, prepared by G.R. Proudfoot, is from the only known early edition, printed by William Rastell on 12 February 1533.
