Ben Jonson's glittering domestic comedy will be revived this Autumn as part of the White Bear's Lost Classics Programme. Updated to the stylish 1930's in the first ever professional UK adaptation of this little known classic play.

The fabulously wealthy Lady Loadstone holds a dinner party to marry off her young niece Placentia Steele, who possesses a large dowry, which is kept in the tightfisted hands of Sir Moth Interest. With a motley assortment of gentlemen dinner guests in attendance, all motivated by either love or money, and a household of unmanageable servants, the outcome is a comic and complex tangle of misunderstandings, mishaps and marriages!
