Event Details

Alexis and Aline are due to be married, and the town is celebrating extravagantly. Alexis, an idealist, is determined that love should level all ranks, and to prove his theory, he employs the aid of a Sorcerer – John Wellington-Wells – to concoct a love potion. Secretly, Wells administers the potion to the entire village during the wedding banquet. As the clock strikes midnight, the villagers awake and fall deeply in love with the first person they see – with disastrous results. But when Aline falls head over heels for the town vicar, Alexis regrets his actions. He pleads with the Sorcerer, but Wells reveals that in order to reverse the spell either he or Alexis must die…
