Plot Summary
Recent widower Guy Jones (Jeremy Irons) is transferred to a sleepy small town in Britain, where he decides to audition for an amateur production of "The Beggar's Opera." The director, Dafydd Ap Llewellyn (Anthony Hopkins), is such a tyrant that most of the actors quit, bringing Guy's role to more prominence. His local fame facilitates his seduction of numerous townswomen, including co-star Fay (Jenny Seagrove) and Llewellyn's wife, Hannah (Prunella Scales).
