The Maid's Tragedy
by Francis Beaumont and John Fletcher
A Husband Halted. A Mistress Mocked. A Daughter Devastated. A Sister Shamed. Lovers Lost. When the King commands Evadne, sister to the soldier Melantius, to marry Amintor despite the young man’s promises to Aspatia, he sparks a fire in his court that consumes his kingdom. This sensual, sensational, spectacular, subversive piece of Jacobean Drama deserves to be rediscovered.
