Sex and general salaciousness in the decadent theatre district of... Liverpool. Hey, in the trenches, acting folk work extra hard on every aspect of their profession. Besides, to date this is the only Olympia title to combine the erotic life with Shakespeare. Also there's a player in it named Maurice, and as we erotophiles all know, anytime there's an Olympia title with a "Maurice" or a heavily accented publisher, you gotta pay close attention to the backstory.
It's just like a "J. C." character in Faulkner.
