Lamplighters Music Theatre presents a dark musical comedy, full of deceit, lies, and corruption, set in 16th century England’s bloody Tower of London. War hero Fairfax is to be executed on a false charge of "dealings with the devil", put forward by a villainous relative who stands to inherit his estate. Fairfax’s friend Sergeant Meryll and his daughter concoct a plan to smuggle him out disguised as the Sergeant's son, a newly appointed Yeoman. Meanwhile, Fairfax manages to marry the performer Elsie, who will inherit his estate and therefore thwart the scoundrel's plan. Add to the mix Elsie’s performing partner who is in love with her, an incompetent jailer, and a crowd of bloodthirsty townsfolk ready for a good old-fashioned execution, and we are ensured a plot full of love triangles, twists and turns, and intrigue. “the ultimate operetta masterpiece” – San Francisco Classical Voice
