    First performed by Paul's Boys circa 1590, Mother Bombie is unique among Lyly's comedies in its urban setting and focus upon middle- and lower-class concerns. The complex plot turns on a tissue of misconceptions surrounding the efforts of four fathers to secure advantageous marriages for their heirs, and their servants' efforts to outwit them.
