The second one reminds me of an idea I had (that was meant to be a TV show) about lesbians in the 1700s, where in order for them to marry, one of them pretended to be a man by enlisting in the military. And then got actually sent off to war. It was based on a lot of old cross-dressing folk songs, a couple of broken token ballads, and a wee bit of greek tragedy. I’m now actually seriously considering having a bash at some sort of sctipt.
