A Drama Classic: The World's Great Plays at a Great Little Price

A classic Restoration comedy by the first English female playwright.

Arriving in Naples at carnival time, a group of exiled cavaliers determine to enjoy themselves. They are repeatedly tempted and tricked by various prostitutes and their pimps, until their leader, the Rover, is finally forced to give up his wild behaviour when he falls in love with a single minded, wealthy virgin.

Edited and introduced by Simon Trussler.
