How far would you go to impress a girl?

All the young ladies have fallen madly in love with a flamboyant poet named Bunthorne. He basks in their adoration, but the one girl he wants to attract, a modest milkmaid named Patience, will have nothing to do with him. What will Bunthorne do when a rival poet arrives and steals not just the attentions of the besotted maidens, but also Patience's heart? And how will the maidens' former suitors, the staid Dragoon Guards, respond to the new craze for poetic and romantic love?
