$50, includes donation to Scholarship Fund

The play tells the story of two young bucks who, having spent all their money by living too well, leave London and roam from town to town in search of love and fortune.  In order to find a wealthy heiress for at least one of them, they pose as master and servant – exchanging roles from one town to the next.  In Lichfield, Aimwell is the master and Archer is the servant, and there they meet the lovely, wealthy Dorinda and her equally desirable sister-in-law, Mrs. Kate Sullen.  They set their caps for these women, but problems abound.  Kate is married to a drunken sot who despises her; the innkeepers saucy daughter, Cherry, has set her cap for Archer; Dorinda’s mother, Lady Bountiful, mistakenly belives herself to be a great healer of the sick, and she guards her daughter like a dragoness; and a band of brigands plans to rob the house of Lady Bountiful that very night, putting all schemes in jeopardy.
