About the Show
Caught in the Villain's Web is a traditional melodrama with plenty of opportunity to boo the villain, cheer the hero and sigh for the heroine.
Felicity Fair, down trodden heroine, is a nurse sent to the Larkfield mansion to attend a hard hearted society matron who is pretending to be ill to force her son, Malvern, to marry the scheming Nella Hargrave. Malvern takes one look at Felicity and falls in love.
When Malvern proposes he is unaware that villain Cyril Bothingwell is behind a screen listening. Felicity sadly informs Malvern that she can never marry. Five years ago she was in a train wreck and cannot remember a thing that happened prior to the wreck. She doesn't even know her real name.
Cyril tells Felicity that she is his wife but Cyril's nefarious schemes are thwarted to the delight of all.
