  • Overview
    Mixing an elegant comedy of manners with a feisty touch of farce, this is a world of want and desire where the men are all rogues annd the women are no better than they ought to be.

    A biting critique of marriage, money, make-up and missing diamonds in the outrageous soap-opera world of restoration London.

    City brokers Gripe and Moneytrap lust after each other's wives. Their bored trophy wives lust after more money. A bogus gold-digging colonel has his eye on Gripe's daughter. The servants have their eye on the main chance.

    Some things just never change...
