Programme Note
Synopsis:
Bored of Court life, Lady Harriet and her maid Nancy disguise themselves as country girls and go to Richmond Fair where they are engaged as servants by two farmers, Lionel and Plunkett. The two men fall in love with the girls, but are furious when they realise that they have been duped. However when Lady Harriet and Nancy return to court, they realise that they reciprocate the farmers’ feelings. They arrange a recreation of Richmond Fair in Lady Harriet’s garden and the couples are reunited.
