About the play: The Rover follows the escapades of a band of banished English cavaliers who pursue a pair of noble Spanish sisters, as well as a courtesan and a common prostitute. Willmore, a raffish naval captain, falls in love with Hellena, a wealthy noble woman, who is determined to experience love before she’s sent to a convent. However, a famous courtesan, Angellica Bianca, also falls in love with Willmore. Meanwhile, Hellena's older sister, Florinda, tries to avoid an unappealing arranged marriage and devises a plan to marry her true love, Colonel Belvile. The third major plot deals with the provincial Blunt, who is convinced that a girl has fallen in love with him only to find out that she is a prostitute and a thief. The Rover is rich with humor, sprightly wit, and farcical adventures.
