In the play, Sheva discovers that Charles and Elizabeth Ratcliffe are the son and daughter of “Don Carlos,” a man who once rescued him from certain death in Cadiz, Spain, so he sets out to ensure their happiness by providing Elizabeth with enough wealth to satisfy her mercenary new father-in-law and ensuring that Charles can once again take pride in a once illustrious family name.

Although first staged more than 200 years ago, Cumberland’s sentimental comedy remains fresh today, its wit still vibrant and its attack on prejudice as relevant today as it was when it was written. Includes an introduction by 18th Century theater scholar Jean Marsden.
