Rape upon Rape is a play by Henry Fielding.  It was first performed in 1730, at the Haymarket Theatre.  The play was influenced by the rape case of Colonel Francis Charteris.  It used rape as an allegory to describe all abuses of freedom, and the corruption of power and justice, in a comedic and farcical manner.  The play revolves around a comedic love plot, in which Hilaret and Constant are the lovers.

A Mr Milward played Mr Constant in the original cast.
