Costume notes
Parody of a Victorian melodrama - all the exaggerated wickedness, innocence, heroism and coincidence, with added comedy! Several scenes, but sets implied rather than elaborate. Simple props. Contains mild innuendo.
Old lepidopterist, Squire Decrepit, is the wicked Vylene's fourth husband - and she's about to look for a fifth. All that stands between her and the dashing Mark Christmas is the sweet, innocent Abigail her strange uncle, Ivor and Squire Decrepit - who just happens to be in a wheelchair on a cliff-top.
