Virtue Triumphant, or, Her Honour in Peril, is a comedy melodrama by Pat Norris. It is a full-blooded melodrama complete with wicked Squire, handsome hero, beautiful heroine persecuted and turned out with baby into the snow, comic rustics, flirtatious matron, susceptible vicar and other staple ingredients. Thrilling adventures include a last-minute rescue, a chase, and a plethora of murdered bodies turning into vengeful ghosts. The basis of the main plot is the Squire’s lust for the lovely Rose and his determination – on hearing of her coming marriage to handsome Richard – to possess her by hook or crook.
We will be performing Virtue Triumphant at Bluntisham Village Hall on April 14th, 15th and 16th. Why not raise a flagon of mead and join us?
