Here we have a young girl who is promised to man whom she does not love. She loves a boy from the town madly (and secretly) who does not have the dowry to pay to marry her. There's a poor young man at the estate who is not too smart and can't figure out how to please the mistress of the estate. The mistress of the estate who is in love with the young boy but for the formalities of life, is afraid to tell him. There are two vagabond actors, one of whom is a long lost relative, a few townspeople and two servants on the estate.
The actors all serve up outstanding performances - from the comedic to the dramatic and you left the theatre with a sense of just having witnessed true professionals delivering the goods. Bravo!
