Two 17th century aristocratic families, due to decline in their ancestral legacies, inhabit separate parts of a crumbling castle and thrive on making each other miserable. The feuding noblemen try to outwit one another for romance and control over their extravagant realm while their family members pursue their selfish interests of greed and lust. Thwarted lovers, mistaken identity, closed-door couplings and long simmering feuds abound in this delightful farce! Based on Aleksander Fredro's epic poem.
