About the Show
All of the Baronets of Ruddigore are under a terrible curse enacted by a witch long ago–each of the successive Baronets must commit some kind of crime every single day, or else die in agony. Robin Oakapple has been living as a farmer for years, working up the courage to ask the beautiful Rose Maybud for her hand, but he is hiding a secret–he is actually Sir Ruthven, the Baronet of Ruddigore, and has been hiding in disguise while his younger brother Despard assumed the title–and the curse. Betrayed by his foster-brother Richard, Robin is discovered and must take on the responsibility of committing a crime every day in order to appease the curse–and the ghosts of all his ancestors past, who are none too happy with his law-abiding behavior. Robin must somehow find a way to lead the honest life he loves–but how?
