"Ask me no questions, and I’ll tell you no fibs.”
A rich country squire tries to arrange for his beautiful daughter Kate to marry the son of an aristocrat. Unfortunately, the young man gets all flustered with well-brought-up ladies and is only comfortable with lower-class women. Determined to catch him, Kate pretends to be a servant girl in order to succeed. A comedy of errors makes this stunning, romantic farce one of the wittiest cross matches in the canon of Restoration/eighteenth-century literature.
