    Caveat

    ★★★

    ”There’s got to be more to this.”

    "You're a gallant soldier and have evidently come of good stock; but you are idle, dissolute, and unprincipled. You've done a great deal of harm to the men and, for all your talents and bravery, I am sure you will come to no good."

    A Picaresque period piece comedy-of-errors and happenstance where luck and good fortune weave a colourful tapestry, a fun condemnation of the ruling class as immoral, decadent, self-important and, above all, foolish, or simply the lengths a…
