Must chaste maids be chased maids? Money and marriage collide in this cacophonous city comedy as poor Moll contends with the aptly-named Whorehound, her arranged husband to be.

Take a trip to Cheapside, London’s greatest meat market! Poor Mr. & Mrs. Touchwood can’t stop having kids, while Sir Kix and Lady Kix can’t have any. Mr. Allwit’s got several, but luckily the real father foots the bill. And the Yellowhammers are convinced that a knight named Whorehound is the perfect husband to bring their daughter into high society. Through it all, young lovers pledge their everlasting devotion - even if they aren’t speaking exactly the same language. Join the citizens of Cheapside for a day. How chaste would you be?
