Editor's note: the theatre bores me to tears unless it's ancient drama based solely on violence or mythology and so I lost track of what was going on a few minutes in. I did chuckle a few times with the mention of the character named Fag though. Speaking of Fag, after hearing the name spoken several times I just assumed that this was modern comedy probably done by an avant garde troupe of neo-renaissance romantics or something idiotic of the sorts but no, it's a play written in the latter part of the 1700s. I never would have guessed as much.
