NOTE
The entire action takes place at Bath, the fashionable watering place of the British upper classes
during the eighteenth century. Here gathered the cream of Society to enjoy prolonged periods of
idle vacationing. The British moral sense was wonderfully satisfied at this resort since it was
clearly the duty of the governing class to keep fit and gain health and vigour from the abundant
medicinal waters by drinking and immersion. They were equally fortified spiritually; especially
after the celebrated beau Nash, as major domo, had introduced both decorum and elegance by
concerts, games, dances, and parties, together with the intellectual delight of conversing informally while enjoying the open air of the splendid promenades or "parades" which had been
constructed. To Bath came also many from the fringes of Society who sought to better
themselves by marrying a fortune, a title, or both. It is the affairs of this Society that our
playwright has noted for our observation.
