One Flea Spare - 2016 - Off-Broadway History , Info & More

Sheen Center for Thought and Culture
18 Bleecker St New York, NY 10012

London. The Black Plague. Four people are locked in a single room. They face the clash of social, cultural, and sexual boundaries, and are forever changed.

ONE FLEA SPARE is set in plague-ravaged 17th-century London, where a wealthy couple is preparing to flee their home when a mysterious sailor and a young girl appear sneaking into their boarded up house. Now, quarantined together for 28 days, the only thing these strangers fear more than the Plague is each other. Definitions of morality are up for grabs and survival takes many forms in this dark, fiercely intense and humorous play.

This production will be a modern reimagining of the piece, directed by Caitlin McLeod (And I And Silence, Signature; The Malcontent, Shakespeare's Globe London; A Further Education, Hampstead Theatre), with Scenic & Projection Design by Bryce Cutler, Costume Design by Sarafina Bush, Lighting Design by Aaron Porter, Composition & Sound Design by Mark Van Hare, Props by Megan O'Leary, production managed by Matthew Mauer, and stage managed by Ed Herman.
