The story follows the mischief of crooked army recruiting officers, Captain Plume and Sergeant Kite, as they head to the county town of Shrewsbury to persuade men to take the Queen’s Shilling by any means, legal or otherwise! Plume has set his cap at the vivacious Sylvia, and their bumpy path to true love is mirrored by their closest friends, nervy, melancholy Worthy, and haughty, comically self-important heiress, Melinda.
Help and hindrance come in equal measure from Captain Brazen, the foppiest of Fops.
Be prepared for saucy shenanigans in a hilarious romp awash with deceit, passion, swordfights, and surprises galore!
