Whilst the rakish naval captain, Willmore, is falling in love with Hellena, the infamous courtesan, Angellica Bianca, is busy falling for him. Meanwhile, Hellena’s sister, Florinda, is fighting to marry her one true love, and countryman Blunt is convinced that he has an admirer, but perhaps he shouldn’t be so sure ...
