There's excitement at the 'Kings Arms' when it is announced that the King is expected in the neighbourhood. Then the actors arrive - not so much strolling players as players on the run, not wishing to be recognised, so at first it is very convenient to be mistaken for the king. At least until the real king arrives. (And, since the King is George III, it's no surprise that it all gets a little mad.)
