In this hilarious and touching tragicomedy, the outrageous “custom” in the title is that the Governor has the right to deflower any new bride in his realm. One couple secretly marries and flees the custom and the country. Meanwhile, the groom’s brother is forced into service in his dream job: head stud at a male brothel. This remarkably modern romp journeys through shipwrecks and lost loves with magic potions, power plays, and repentant rulers on its way to a happy ending where love triumphs over lust. Pay what you will.
