Ned Winwife (Ben Kingsley), a London gallant, came courting Dame Purecraft (Patience Collier), a widow who lived with her daughter, Win-the-Fight (Helen Mirren), and her son-in-law, John Littlewit (Terrence Hardiman), a proctor. Littlewit disclosed to Winwife that Dame Purecraft had been told by fortune-tellers that she would marry, within a week, a madman.
