Playwright: Francis Beaumont

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.
