Brighella, the intriguer, desires the sexual favors of Olivetta, wife of lawyer Mr. Robb. Brighella and his partner in crime, Arlecchino, discover that Mr. Robb is a sucker for false prophets. So Brighella pretends he is Pastor Evan Gellico of the Church of G's (Goodness, Gladness and Gold). They dupe Mr. Robb into believing by pretending to raise Arlecchino from the dead. Mr. Robb invites them to his home to resurrect his father in law who just died, but Olivetta sees through the ruse. When Brighella sets up a tryst with her, she has her husband dress in her clothes and a wig to keep the appointment. In a bawdy comic finale, Brighella and his accomplice are unmasked and punished.
