This 1895 farce inspired by the outlandish idea of women wearing pants, centers around the predicament of the three daughters of the eccentric Marchioness of Castlejordan, who determined to have sons, raised them like boys. She encouraged them to dress and act like boys at home, yet dress like ladies when out. As the girls come of age, they are conflicted. They want to please mother by acting as her sons, but, suddenly smitten with three gentlemen, they are compelled to grow up and be ladies. When their suitors secretly come to woo, they aren’t sure what to do……and what will mother do if she finds out? (Summary by A.L. Gramour)CastLady Castlejordan: Algy PugNoeline: Elizabeth KlettThomasin: Arielle LipshawWilhelmina: Amy GramourReverend Roger Minchin/Andre de Grival: Lars RolanderBarrington Litterly: John FrickerGalfred Tweenwayes: Peter BishopSergeant Shuter: Liberty StumpFitton/Youat/Orts: Levi ThrockmortonNarrator: MalaneAudio edited by Amy Gramour
