The Wisest Have Their Fools About Them



Monsieur Silly wants to woo Urina and enlists the help of the witty but penniless student Musophilus. But Musophilus wants Urina for himself. Find out if a little love poetry, a Cupid impersonator, and a curious cure for blindness are enough to get the girl…

The Society’s edition, prepared by Elizabeth Baldwin, is based on the unique MS in Chester Record Office, a scribal transcript made in the late 1620s and probably once the property of the Crewe family. The play itself is an academic comedy in the mode of Ben Jonson.
