Callow's lively speculations do not follow the familiar route of lace-trimmed interpretations and gratuitous pageantry. He rejects camp for camp's sake, and embraces instead the magnificently perverse language as the primarily seductive force in Restoration Comedy.
With the text as his inspiration, he shapes an actor's sensibility, coaching his performance in the conventions of the age, including the politics and manners of props, the choreography of asides, the truth and burlesque of emotion, the flamboyant egotism of the age, the life of the costume, and the audience in performance.
