BLACKFRIARS PREMIERE. In the bawdy, riotous tradition of all his city comedies, Ben Jonson╩╝s Epicene explores love, sex, and trickery in Early Modern London. Urban playboy, Dauphine, wants his peace-and- quiet-loving Uncle Morose╩╝s fortune and hatches an elaborate plan to get it. Take a suspiciously silent bride, all of Dauphine╩╝s London cronies, and a deal that is simply too good to be true; and Morose gets a wedding day he won╩╝t soon forget.
