Synopsis:

Posing as a well-to-do gentleman and his manservant, Aimwell and Archer—two recently impoverished rakes—take the town of Lichfield by storm, seeking to secure wealthy women as wives and so refill their own coffers. While Aimwell sets his sights on eminently eligible bachelorette Dorinda, Archer angles toward her sister-in-law, the most unhappily married Mrs. Sullen. Gaining the interest of their respective targets and access to the house in which the ladies reside, Aimwell and Archer set out to take hold of the ladies’ wealth before they can be exposed either by a suspicious innkeeper and his band of highwaymen or by an acquaintance privy to their true identity. The ensuing action creates a wild whirl of schemes and revealing amorous declarations and that propel the play to its happy end, in which the truth comes out.
