The City Madam by Philip Massinger, Cathy Shank



A re-working of Shakespeare's "Measure for Measure" as a waspish city comedy that attacks the greed, hypocrisy and self-indulgence of 1630s London. Sir John Frugal and his daughters' spurned suitors return from their travels disguised as Amerindians. Their feigned godliness is contrasted with the failure of Christian charity.
