  • Overview
    Money-grubbing nouveau-riche merchant Mr Sterling wants to buy his way into the aristocracy by marrying off his elder daughter Betsey to impoverished young baronet Sir John Melvil. Unfortunately Sir John takes more of a shine to his younger daughter Fanny, and though Mr Sterling is perfectly amenable to brokering a new deal with Sir John for the delectable Fanny, there is an unfortunate spanner in the works – Fanny is already married, in secret, to his clerk Mr Lovewell. Huge complications equal to the height of early twentieth century bedroom farce, with Sir John’s randy old uncle Lord Ogleby getting in on the act, and Betsey and her horrid rich aunt Mrs Heidelberg determined to ruin Fanny’s chances and get their revenge on her.
