You have three acts; the style is Restoration Comedy. Your task is to rewrite the RTD years in this style. This shouldn't prove too much of a challenge, realy. Razz

To start you off with a plot suggestion: Dr Utopius and Capt O'Thrustington hope to fund a voyage to the East Indies. Naturally (after considerable machination raising the funds, trying to sleep with various women, men, cheeses, etc), they are shipwrecked off the island of Bumwumtumrumnumlum.

Dr. Redux Utopius stands in the field.

REDUX: I regrette it. I soeth, soeth regrette it.
