1976 - 1977
Lock Up Your Daughters
Hilaret is preparing to elope with Captain Constant. Meanwhile her doddering father Politic spends all his time arguing with his coffee-house confrère Dabble over conflicting reports contained in the 40 or more newspapers they read daily.
Ramble, after discussing with his buddy Sotmore his preference for wenches over wine, accosts Hilaret on her way to her rendezvous with Constant. After each accuses the other of rape, the constable hauls both of them off to appear before the corrupt magistrate Squeezum. Squeezum proposes an assignation with Hilaret in return for her freedom while Mrs Squeezum sets her sights on Ramble.
The various assignations take place in front of carefully planted witnesses. Ultimately everyone ends up in front of Justice Worthy and is rewarded or punished as appropriate.
