When such a young woman cannot be found, Lady Billows determines to have a May King, in the person of Albert Herring, a mother-dominated grocer's assistant. When a practical joker fills Herring's lemonade glass with rum, the May King becomes inebriated and disappears into the night, searching for disreputable pleasures. At first presumed dead, he returns to the village the following day, disheveled and haggard, but ready to fight for his newrwon emancipation.  SCENES The action of the opera takes place in Loxford, a small market-town in East Suffolk, during April and May of the year 1900. ACT I Scene I — Scene II — ACT II Scene I — . Scene II — ACT III  > Lady Billows' conservatory. Mrs. Herring's grocery shop. A tent in the Vicarage garden Mrs. Herring's grocery shop. Mrs. Herring's grocery shop.  There will be two 15 minute intermissions.  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS C.B.C. THE VANCOUVER PLAYHOUSE ST.
