The Knight of the Burning Pestle - Sunday, April 7, 2pm
A staged reading.
A grocer and his wife crash a production of a citizen comedy at a boy’s theatre in London: they are demanding a much different production, of knights and adventure, starring their apprentice, Rafe. This musical metatheatrical comedy, written by Francis Beaumont, a long-time collaborator of John Fletcher, pulls back the curtain on theatrical presentation of Jacobean England in various amusing and ridiculous ways.
