An unwitting theatre troupe gets more than they bargained for when an Honorable Citizen Grocer George and his Wife, Nell, attend the theatre for the first time they manage to pervert the intentions of the actors to present, The London Merchant. The grocer and his wife demand to see a play about a Grocer-Errant battling bloodthirsty giants, wooing exotic princesses, and leading armies into battle. They insist their apprentice Rafe should play the lead role and then begin to come up with fanciful plotlines and scenarios without pause. The players do their best to maintain their dignity and continue their play as they are forced to perform impromptu scenes with the Rafe, the quixotic knight.
