All's Lost By Lust archiveRowley's play presents a bleak image of a world filled with Christian lust and Moorish barbarity, and ends in a gruesome orgy of cruelty and death. When Julianus discovers that his daughter, Jacinta, has been raped by King Rodericke, he sides with Spain's enemy, the Moor Mulymumen, to wreak revenge. Mulymumen becomes King. When Jacinta repels Mulymumen's advances, both father and daughter are punished in a trick that is one of the most shocking in the Jacobean repertoire A subplot can offer bigamy and strangulation and the first orange-seller to appear on the English stage.
