This sparkling entertainment is loaded with laughs and seedy jokes. Montague Leech and Carlota Castanet make a tidy profit shanghaiing lads from a disreputable tavern. The owner expires leaving the tavern to his only heir, Bertha Birthright. Montague must get rid of the damsel. Enter Jack Swan, English sailor with a love for the theatre. He offers Bertha protection and the hilarity mounts, especially after gold is discovered. An optional miniature musical revue can easily be added to the plot. Designed for easy rehearsals and no production problems, Dark Deeds can be expanded or shortened to a desired length.
"A classic melodrama...Plenty here to boo, hiss and sigh about...Sparkling dialogue. Worth seeing." - News Chronicle
