The Northern Lass by Richard Brome, a play written and first staged in 1638, is a boisterous comedy with music that focuses on the wooing and marriage of four women: Mistress Fitchow, a rich and domineering widow; Constance, the innocent Northern Lass of the title, freshly arrived in the city; Trainwell, who acts as her governess ;and Camitha Holdup, a cunning courtesan who impersonates the Northern Lass. They are wooed by Triedwell, Squelch, Nonsense, Widgeon and Luckless… as these names suggest, there is a little gentle satire about love, and more confusion here than an episode of MAFS!
