  • Overview
    The heart of the play is the rebellion of Hippolyta, a 14-year-old wise beyond her years, against the cloistering forced on her by her strict Catholic father. With her maid and the unwitting aid of her doltish and foppish fiancé, a cousin chosen by her father, she plots to sample the wider world in the person of a dashing young gentleman of the town.

    Hippolyta gets her wish when, somewhat against his better judgment, Mr. Gerrard is lured to her bed chamber and it’s love at first sight for both. Discovered in near flagrante, she has the presence of mind to introduce her newly minted lover as the harmless dancing master of the title.
