1923 - 1924

The Rebel Maid

Lord Milverton welcomes his nephew, Sir Stephen Crespigny, to his mansion in Devonshire.  Sir Stephen has been appointed by King James II to suppress the Anti-Stuart Plot. Beautiful young Lady Mary Trefusus, a guest at this loyalist gathering, is one of the secret leaders of the anti-loyalist plot. Her code name is “Snow Bunting”. Sir Stephen seeks the hand of Lady Mary but his uncle prefers that she marry his only son, Derek Lanscombe, who has been abroad for three years, which arouses Sir Stephen’s suspicions. And yes – Derek is the commander of the rebel cutter “Curlew”. He arrives with an entourage of relatives who create many humorous incidents. Behind the scenes, he is arranging for the arrival of William, Prince of Orange. Snow Bunting is to light a green lantern from the Jolly Fishers Inn near Torbay if it is safe for William to land.  Sir Stephen intercepts a letter and plans to reveal Derek as a traitor. In the meantime, Derek is falling in love with Snow Bunting, in spite of some misunderstandings.


Act Two takes place at the Jolly Fishers Inn on the Thursday in the autumn of 1688 before William landed at Torbay. Lady Mary pretends to fall from her horse so that she can get to the second-storey room from where she will light the lamp. She signals red at 10:00 pm as the loyalists are at the inn and it is not safe to land. Derek is lured into a trap laid for him, but later, with help from the fishermen,  escapes through a secret passage. Sir Stephen discovers Lady Mary’s secret and threatens to execute her  for treason unless she marries him.


Act Three begins the next morning on the village green. Sir Stephen works with Captain Percy to apprehend his hated rival, Derek. Derek arrives ahead of Prince William’s forces and thinks he can safely enter the inn, as Captain Percy has left. Just as he is about to be executed, Captain Percy returns with the news that Prince William is about to arrive. The Stuart loyalists surrender and Derek claims the hand of the Rebel Maid.
