In this light-hearted comedy of courtship, the knife-sharp Letitia has been betrothed to the foppish Doricourt since childhood, but she fears she is soon to be trapped in a loveless marriage. With the help of the sly Mrs. Racket, the saucy Mrs. Ogle, and country Lady Frances Touchwood – whose sniveling husband is terrified of her discovering city life – Letitia hatches a plan to fascinate her fiancé, ensuring that he knows he is soon to be wed to an equal partner. The women conspire to open the eyes of the men – dancing rings around them at a masquerade ball where mistaken identities ensure joyous resolution. Written in 1780, Hannah Cowley’s rom-com romp is a timeless and triumphant cry for love, decency, and equality.
