4 Male 3 Female

Will Blunt is in love with Molly, a young transvestite prostitute

But when Blunt rescues him from a life on the streets, he doesn't count on Molly falling in love with Dashwood, the handsome womanizing rake

Restoration comedy meets modern sex farce in this romantic adventure, exploring the elusive nature of happiness and featuring mistaken identities, duels and double-dealings, gay marriage and the obligatory sex cave


"An extremely stylish (and exuberantly filthy) sex farce" ~ Variety

"Mr Grimm seeks to do a little restoration work of his own, inserting great chunks of fresh dirt into every nook, cranny and convention of a traditional form ... rich material for high-style playing" ~ NY Times
