Added DiffLines:

''The Sea Voyage'' is a play by John Fletcher written around 1622, and first printed in the Fletcher and Beaumont Folio in 1647. A parody of sorts of ''Theatre/TheTempest'' [[note]] Fletcher was Shakespeare's successor as play-maker for the King's Men, and some speculate that this play using many of the same tropes as ''The Tempest'' was a marketing ploy to drum up interest in the forthcoming First Folio. [[/note]] that also opens with a ship in a storm. The French pirate Albert has kidnapped Aminta, and is carrying her and a group of snobbish nobles when their ship hits the storm. They wreck on a deserted island and meet a pair of castaways: Nicusa and Sebastian, who promptly steal their ship after showing them stores of treasure. The nobles try to eat Aminta, and Albert discovers that the island is also home to a group of would-be Amazons. HilarityEnsues.

!!Tropes:

* DeusExMachina: Raimond arrives with Sebastian and Nicusa just in time to save everybody from being killed by Rosilla, who happens to be Sebastian's long-lost wife.
* DoWrongRight: When Tibalt discovers the attempted cannibalism, he has this to say:
-->'''TIBALT''': Oh, damníd villains! ó\\
Speak; is it true?\\
'''SURGEON''': I confess an appetite.\\
'''TIBALT''': An appetite? Iíll fit ye for an appetite!\\
Are ye so sharp-set that her flesh must serve you?\\
Murderís a main good service with your worships.\\
Since ye would be such devils, why did you not\\
Begin with one another handsomely,\\
And spare the woman to beget more food on?
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: Aminta tries to convince Albert to give up on their love so that he can avoid being killed by the jealous Clarinda.
