I have not read the Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket in years. Honestly it seems so grim, that I just get depressed. I believe, however, that the play which Count Olaf made was called The Marvelous Marriage. This play was presented as a play, but it was really his way of tricking the oldest girl into marrying him, so he could have control of their fortune. He actually hired a real official to perform the "fake" marriage in the play hoping that this would make him legally in control of the money.
