Black: A Comedy of Bubonic Proportions

by Morgan Clyde
Directed by Sarah Goodwin

At the height of England’s attack on France, during the Hundred Years’ War, the men of Castle Binbury have been called to march out and join with King Edward’s army.  But when the lord of the castle is found dead from Plague on the morning of their departure, things start to get a bit complicated.  As his wife and attendants try to cover up his death, their plan is threatened by an eccentric doctor, a hapless minstrel, and the lord’s insufferably spoiled son.  Through an increasingly intricate ruse and a series of slapstick complications, the residents of Castle Binbury must fight to keep their reputation – and themselves – alive.
