Synopsis

Based on Thomas Heywood's The Fair Maid of the West, Parts I and II, this new adaptation combines both plays into one epic story recounting the adventures of lowborn tavern girl, Bess Bridges, and her true love, a gentleman soldier named Spencer. Through a series of misadventures, the ardent lovers are separated and Bess is left believing Spencer dead in the Spanish wars overseas. Inheriting his fortune, she buys a ship and embarks on a journey, vowing to bring his body home. Accompanied by the brave Goodlack, the braggart Roughman, and the comic innkeeper Clem, Bess faces many a challenge, including roaring battles, mistaken identities and storm-tossed seas. An old-fashioned swashbuckler in the spirit of Captain Blood and The Three Musketeers.
