Overview

Farce

Characters: 13 male, 7 female, plus extras.

Multiple sets

The lady has two lovers: a ne'er do well who is secretly affianced to a Baroness' daughter and a flamboyant Spanish general who challenges to a duel any man who comes near her. An amateur composer who hopes the lady will sing his song places his card in a bouquet sent anonymously and thereby seals his fate: the ne'er do well uses him to divert the general's flashing sword. Meanwhile, the ne'er do well is trapped in his skivvies outside his apartment. When the cops come to arrest him for indecent exposure, you can be sure it is the songwriter who goes to jail. The comedy vibrates with farcical situations and extrications before the truth is revealed. "A triumph of ingenuity, gaiety, absurdity and laughter." Daily Telegraph
