Book Description:
Cupid's Whirligig is a city comedy: a play in colloquial language dealing with the everyday life of London's citizens. A knight, Sir Timothy Troublesome, suspects his wife of cheating on him and, to prove that any children she bears are not his own, decides to 'geld' himself. Meanwhile, the young Lord Nonsuch dreams of bedding the knight's wife, and in disguise enters the Troublesomes' employ as a servant. Cupid descends from the heavens to cast a love spell on the citizens of London and, by the last act, one character loves another, who loves another, and so on until the last loves the first: a "Cupid's whirligig". The knight's faithful servant, Wages, hatches a plot to match each man with his proper wife. - Summary by Rob Board Cast Narrator: Chuck Williamson Cupid: Beth Thomas Old Lord Nonsuch: alanmapstone Alderman Venter: ToddHW Sir Timothy Troublesome: Jason in Panama Lady Troublesome: Sonia Master Correction: Nigel Fisher Mistress Correction: Availle Peg, the Lady Troublesome's Kinswoman: Khand Nan, Old Venter's Daughter: Leanne Yau Nucome, a Welsh Courtier: Phil Birss A Boy, Nucome's Page: ScarlettG Four Scholars: Stoofy Young Lord Nonsuch: Tomas Peter Master Exhibition, the Inns-a-Court Man: ToddHW Wages, the Knight's Servingman: Rob Marland Servingman: Owen Cook Edited by: Rob Marland
