Fanny Hill is based on the John Cleland novel and, according to press notes, is "the story of a beautiful but poor country girl who travels to London to make her fortune and ends up making a great deal more. . . the army, the navy and most of Parliament! In the face of big city trials and tribulations, our indefatigable heroine ends up giving new meaning to the expression 'making it' when she becomes the foremost practitioner of the world's oldest profession." The York Theatre Company is located in St. Peter's Theatre, just east of Lexington Avenue on East 54th Street.
