About the Show

A young maiden, Trothe, learns that her entire inheritance will be forfeit to anyone that bests her in a duel once she comes of age. The catch? Her birthday is in a week. She must turn to her Aunt Theodosia, a famed swordswoman, if she is to keep her house and lands. She also enlists the aid of her two favorite servants, though they may prove more hindrance than help. With the house filling up with Prussian swordmasters, a clueless lawyer, and a poetically minded suitor, events unfold in true farcical fashion. Like all good farces, everyone gets the ending they deserve, but will they be satisfied?
