Clague Playhouse's season wraps with satirical farce
Clague Playhouse will close its season with "Incorruptible, A Dark Comedy About the Dark Ages." In this bawdy farce written by Michael Hollinger, the clever satire pokes gentle fun at a group of 13th century monks trying to survive by selling relics – bones of saints – to any church which will buy them.
The problem is they don't have enough dead saints to go around, so they become quite innovative in order to continue their business. The story is set in a monastery in Priseaux, France, and has monks, a one-eyed minstrel, a nun, a young woman and her pesky mother – not to mention lots of dead bones!
Directed by Tyson Douglas Rand, the comedy features a talented cast of actors including Jeff Bartholomew, Marthan M. Brown, Emmy Cohen, Charles Cover, Richie Lynch, Robert Gibb, Meg Parish and Dan Sekanic.
The show runs through June 4, with performances Thursdays through Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m.
