The English Civil War is over, and the Cavaliers return home to find their family estates and fortunes have vanished and that they have no viable options for income. Meanwhile, their sisters find their marriage prospects bleak and their brothers less than helpful. Not to be deterred, this band of sisters joins together and uses their clever wit to navigate the marriage front in the midst of the English Restoration. Written in the early days of the Restoration, Margaret Cavendish’s comedy sheds light on what it means to rebuild after a war and how men and women’s lives might be reshaped in the midst of rumble.
