Product Description

A satire on George Colman’s farce – “We Fly by Night”, which is about a couple in their bedroom arguing that having agreed to apply for a “Flitch of Bacon” whether it should be fried or boiled. Is there inference in this play to the affair between the Duke of York and Mrs Clarke?
