The Knight of the Burning Pestle Off-Broadway

A joyful celebration of the universal capacity to improvise, this delightful Elizabethan comedy is a rough and rowdy romp. As a group of players gathers to present a play about the elopement of star-crossed lovers, they are abruptly interrupted by a grocer and his wife. They have a different kind of play in mind–an outrageous hero’s quest of derring-do…The Knight of the Burning Pestle. And they know just the fellow to star–their apprentice, Rafe. This new subplot–invented on the fly–takes over the stage in surprising and disruptive ways. Everyone shares in the triumph of love and the singular, anything-can-happen adventure that is live theater. The Knight of the Burning Pestle is presented by Red Bull Theater in association with Fiasco Theater.
