Susan Swayne and the Bewildered Bride


    Meet Susan Swayne and the Society of Lady Detectives – aside from their interest in swordplay, they’re all perfectly proper Victorian women. Or are they? When the distraught Isabelle Fontaine-Kite insists that a member of the S.o.L.D. is actually her missing husband, Eric, Susan Swayne is on the case!

    Cross-dressing, double-crosses, opium and topless fencing make for a period action farce with “sass and ovaries of steel.” (Chicago Now)

    10 words or less: Mary Poppins meets the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.
    Rated: PG-13.
