This barmaid’s got a secret…

Christopher Prentice’s Marlow, a Jekyll-and-Hyde vacillation between arrogant foppery and sputtering, stammering nitwit, is worth the price of admission

Time Out Chicago
[tab:Description]

Schemes and wits abound during the course of an evening at a crumbling country estate. Two fashionable young urbanites, lost in the country, find themselves the targets of trickery at the hands of a mischievous ne’er-do-well and a barmaid who is more than she seems. Mistaking the estate as an inn, the two bachelors are shocked to encounter their would-be loves on the premises. In classic farce style, this breakneck comedy skewers social mores, families and old-fashioned courtship.
