An 18th century comedy of manners. Kate Hardcastle is a young lady fixed up to meet the eligible Marlow with a view to marriage.  Marlow is a young gent who is tongue-tied with the upper classes and downright lecherous with commoners.  So when Marlow is tricked into believing Kate’s ancestral home is a country inn, and mistakes Kate for a lowly barmaid what could possibly go wrong.
