1680. Beaugard and Courtine return to London from wars abroad - empty handed and disenchanted. Beaugard hits on a brilliant scheme to improve their fortunes. Clarinda, unhappily married to the aged, infatuated Sir Davey Dunce, concocts a plan to reverse her fortunes. And Sir Jolly Jump, one of the great portraits of wayward sexuality, sets about helping the lovers, thereby enhancing his fortunes... Otway s restoration comedy is brutally, hilariously modern - but the undertow of deep sensuality suggests it is a missing link between Much Ado About Nothing and Oscar Wilde.Performers Anne-Marie Duff, David Bamber, Ray Fearon, Oliver Ford Davies, Alec Newman, Kate Feldschreiber, Michael Howcroft, Sam Kenyon, Kananu Kirimi, Lisa Lee Leslie, James Traherne, Ben Turner.
