The Dutch Courtesan by John Marston

Passion is scourge, love is humiliation, and friends might as well be enemies in The Dutch Courtesan, a Jacobean stage play written by the John Marston ca. 1604. The play tells the story of Freevill who discards his concubine Francischina and, for a joke, sets his straight-laced friend Malhereux on to her. Malhereux falls for Francischina and promises to carry out her revenge on Freevill by killing him.
