"The Talisman Ring" at Lifeline is yummy. Sort of a regency romance with swordfights and men in breeches/ greatcoats. (WHY did that look ever go out of style?) Plotwise, it was a long game of doublecross between an infinitude of cousins. But mostly it was about romantics and competent people, and how they can really all get along, in the end.
Lifeline, as ever, does a tight, inventive staging. Not a black box in sight.
