The Changeling is set in a world of lords and fools where the line between the two is fine. The beautiful Beatrice, driven by her secret lust, enlists the help of her father's servant. But 'honest' Deflores, ugly as sin, drives a harder bargain than she expected. As it changes from bleak tragedy to black farce, 'The Changeling' tells a tale of sex, lies and animal passions. Mayhem is commonplace.
