Willing Suspension Productions “A King and No King”

A King and No King by Francis Beaumont and John Fletcher.

Arbaces, king of Iberia, plans to [...]marry his sister Panthea to Tigranes, the king of Armenia and his conquered enemy. But when Arbaces finally sees his sister again after many years of war, he is so struck by her beauty that he falls in love with her instantly. As Tigranes languishes in prison with his lady-love Spaconia, and the cowardly captain Bessus seeks to prove his valor--but succeeds only in getting beaten repeatedly--Arbaces struggles with his conscience and his counselor and friend Mardonia, until a shocking revelation reveals the king to be "no king."
