This tender-hearted band of Penzance pirates (made up exclusively of orphans unable to harm anyone of similar background) are celebrating Frederic's coming of age and impending release from his apprenticeship to them. He joined the pirates as a child owing to a mistake by Ruth, his nursemaid, who misheard his father's instructions to apprentice him to a pilot. She has remained with Frederic and is desperate to marry him. But, Frederic has met and fallen in love with Mabel whose sisters the pirates have claimed as their future brides. Their father, the General, is horrified at this prospect and declares himself to be an orphan, knowing that this will affect their immediate release. Frederic wastes no time in assembling a police force to capture the pirates.
