About the Play

Manners. Murder. Madcap Mayhem.

En garde for some sword swinging, swooning, and dastardly doings in this hilarious comedy of manners! Hapless heiress Trothe must defend her inheritance against the best swordsmen in the land – except she’s never laid so much as a finger on a sword! Set in the mid-1700s, Trothe’s quest to quickly become a swordmaster puts her in the crossfires of the competing agendas of a domineering aunt, clever servants, a bumbling lawyer, would-be suitors, and a Prussian swordmaster. Mayhem quickly arises in this swashbuckling spoof full of corset-splitting laughs!

“Well – what shall we hang? The holly or each other?”  Set during Christmas in 1183, King Henry II and his wife, Eleanor of Aquitaine are embroiled in a wickedly amusing battle over which son will inherit the crown. It’s a high-stakes political game of chess, and the future of England hangs in the balance. This Tony Award-winning production went on to become an instant classic and an Academy Award winning film starring Katharine Hepburn and Peter O’Toole.
