Overview

Set in the early 19th century, the era of the Napoleonic Wars, this story unfolds through a bedridden English lord who narrates to his story-loving servant a magical tale involving a kidnapped gypsy babe, a tongue-tied accountant, a rich merchant, the merchant's ravishing daughter, magicians, demons, and pirates. Rambunctious and witty, the story interweaves the tale with the narration, in which the servant interrupts his master with suggestions for even more tawdry humor and twists of plot. This tale is a parody of medieval romance literature, where the lovers are united in the end, the villain is punished, and the wanderer returned to his rightful place of honor.

Author Biography: Noble Smith is a winner of the Dramatists Guild of New York Young Playwrights Festival. He lives in Ashland, Oregon.

"...so witty and plain funny that I found myself laughing out loud. This is a treasure to keep on the shelf with Tom Jones and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn." (Alfred Uhry, author of Driving Miss Daisy)
