Fag says: "Love … has been a masquerader ever since the days of Jupiter." And there is plenty of masquerading going on in Act I.
- Capt. Absolute is in disguise as Ensign Beverley to woo Lydia
- Lydia writes letters to self under another name
- Lydia pretends a quarrel with Beverely
- Mrs Malaprop is writing to Sir Lucius under the name Celia, or Delia
- Lucy is pretending to be a "simple" girl while playing both sides of many intrigues: "commend me to a mask of silliness, and a pair of sharp eyes for my own interest under it!"
Any other instances of people doing or pretending to be other than they are? And which of these schemes seem most likely to come back and haunt the perpetrator? ;-)
