1 review about Captain Brassbound's Conversion

A delightful play

In this three act comedy, no person or act is exactly what he, she, or it appears to be. Captain Brassbound's conversion is not from atheism to Christianity, but from a rough character to something slightly more refined, a conversion that lasts only until he leaves the influence of a rather beautiful but silly woman. Indeed, the missionary in the play was only capable of converting one man during his 25 years of activity in Morocco, and this man, a thief, only seems converted, like Brassbound and the woman, when he is near the clergyman. The Muslims in Morocco call the missionaries Epicureans because they seem to a life of luxurious idleness.

The play focuses on the mesmerizing power of a beautiful but foolish woman upon men. She has her way with every man she meets, Christian and Muslim, pious and thief. Brassbound is a brigand who controls a group of thieves by the force of his personality and his physical strength. The uncle of the beautiful woman cheated him and his mother and he wants revenge. But he abandons his plan because of the influence of the woman. Readers will enjoy the play's humor.
