Mrs. Herring the grocer s wife may not know much about âthe art of theatre , but she knows what she likes - and she insists upon getting it. She doesn t want to see lewdness, violence, incest and murder - she can get all that at home! She likes valiant knights and heroic quests and damsels in distress and romantic love stories and happy endings - and most of all she likes her husband s apprentice, Ralph...Beaumont and Fletcher were the Two Ronnies of Jacobean theatre and, in their day, more popular and more performed than Shakespeare.
