John Vanbrugh (1664–1726), autor de The Relapse (Li Recadida).

The Relapse, or, Virtue in Danger (Li Recadida, o Chastitá in Dangere), es un Comedie del Restauration de 1696 per John Vanbrugh, un ovre continuativ al notori drama de Colley Cibber Love's Last Shift, or, Virtue Rewarded (Li Ultim Tric de Amore, o, Chastitá Recompensat). In Li Ultim Tric de Amore, un libervivent libertino del Restauration veni a repententie e reforme per li ruses de su marita, ma in Li Recadida, li libertino resuccumbe a tentation e have un nov amorette. Su virtuosi marita anc experi un provat seduction e resiste penosimen.

Vanbrugh basat li carácteres in The Relapse sur particular actores che li Teatre Reyal, Drury Lane, scrient in li textu lor teatral hábitus, public reputationes, e personal relationes. Un tal actor esset Colley Cibber self, qui rolat quam li dandy Lord Foppington in e Love's Last Shift e The Relapse. Tamen li artistic intentiones de Vanbrugh esset menaciat per un savagi lucte ínter li du teatre-companies de London, chascun "lurant" actores del altri. The Relapse presce ne esset presentat, ma li successosi presentation in Novembre 1696 vindicat li intentiones de Vanbrugh, ultra salvar li companie de bancrotte.

Love's Last Shift nequande denov esset presentat pos li 1690s, ma The Relapse ha retenet su popularitá. In li 18mi secul, tamen, su tolerantie por factic e provat adultérie gradualmen devenit ínacceptabile al public opinion, e durante un secul li original drama esset remplazzati in teatres per li moralisat version de Richard Brinsley Sheridan, A Trip to Scarborough (Un Excursion a Scarborough, 1777). Sur li modern estrade, The Relapse ha esset etablisset quam un del max populari comedies del Restauration, pro li humor simpli de Vanbrugh e li perfect rol de Lord Foppington, un burlesc caráctere con un látere sinistri.
