An intrepid troupe of pageant players races across medieval Europe, struggling to outrun the Black Death. The arrival of a mysterious outsider sends Hollis, the leading lady, in search of answers that can only be found off-script... and soon the 14th-century plague begins to look like another, more recent one. This wildly inventive and funny new work examines the evolution of human creativity in a dark age: When does a crisis destroy us, and when does it open new frontiers? ~ concordtheatricals.com
