Book Description:
Amends for Ladies falls within the genre of Jacobean city comedy. Three women debate which has the better lot: a maid, a wife, or a widow. Lady Honour, the maid, is loved by her servant, Ingen, and disguises herself as a boy to become servant to him. Lady Perfect, the wife, is suspected by her husband, Love-all, of infidelity; Love-all tries to trap his wife by having his devious friend, Subtle, seduce her. A young citizen, Bold, disguises himself as an old woman to enter into the service of the widow, Lady Bright, in the hopes of gaining access to her bed. Amends for Ladies also features a duel-gone-wrong, bawdy jokes aplenty, and a guest appearance by the "Roaring Girl" herself, Moll Cutpurse. - Summary by Rob Board Cast Narrator: KHand Bold: Rob Marland Lord Feesimple: Tomas Peter Lady Bright: Sonia Welltried: ToddHW Lord Proudly: SonOfTheExiles Ingen/Count: Larry Wilson Lady Honour: Leanne Yau Subtle: alanmapstone Lady Perfect: TJ Burns Love-all: MajorToast Grace: Eva Davis Frank: Chuck Williamson Seldom: Nemo Moll Cutpurse/Tearchaps: April6090 Page: Stoofy Drawer: ScarlettG Servant/Bots: Foon Whorebang: Carolin Spillblood: Sandra Schmit Sergeant: lorda Priest: Beth Thomas Edited by: Rob Marland
