  3. The Plague Master General (a bubonic comedy)

“The Plague Master General (a bubonic comedy),” is a bitingly funny and cynical look at a kingdom that handles, mishandles, and ignores an impending and obvious catastrophe.

It’s the mid-1300s (give or take) and a deadly plague no one understands is engulfing Europe. Thankfully, they’ve found someone who’s going to cure it. Is he a doctor? A scholar? A debonair hero with charisma and can-do spirit? Absolutely not. But thanks to a powerful baron, a terrifying baroness, and a doctor-priest who couldn’t be bothered, our “hero" now has a life-or-death responsibility for which he is entirely unqualified.

This new dark comedy mashes “The Crucible” with Monty Python to explore the dangers of hubris, apathy, and blind faith in the healing power of leeches.

Subject matter contains graphic bloody themes, foul language, and references to death. Actors will be coughing throughout the show.
