Aphra Behn’s classic comedy bursts through the conventional boundaries of sex, desire, romantic love and marriage. Helena, bound for a nunnery, hopes fun in the streets will lead to fun in the sheets. Florinda, betrothed to a rich man by her brother, vows to wed her true love. Angelica, a high-priced courtesan, chances the perils of romantic love. Adventures and dangers await when the women unleash themselves onto the streets at Carnival time where they meet the English Cavaliers led by the Rover, a Dionysian force of desire who will find his match in these women of Naples.
