FARCE. Ian, a simple Yorkshire country lad, hears of a law, the droit du seigneur, at a local pub. Though it is a medieval law that is no longer enforced, Ian thinks that he must offer up his fiancée, MaryAnn, to the Duke on their wedding night. Dismayed at the thought but fervently law-abiding, Ian takes MaryAnn to see the Duke so that he can set a date for the droit du seigneur. The Duke, horrified and aghast at the notion, but fearful that Ian, a hulking brute, will cause him bodily harm, must rely on his wits and help from his butler, Travers, to convince the stubborn lad that “while there may be laws o' man, ba gun, there's laws o' nature, too.”
