Taffety Punk presents “Our Black Death: Plagues, Turnips, and other Romantic Gestures”

September 22, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - October 8, 2022 @ 9:30 pm

Our Black Death: Plagues, Turnips, and other Romantic Gestures

by Lindsay Carpenter
Directed by Marcus Kyd

September 22 – October 8

The Bubonic Plague strikes and it’s the end of the world as we know it. As society is turned on its head during the mother of all pandemics, two village women take a chance on love. One takes on the mantle of alewife, and the other takes a job at the castle where the local (self-quarantining) nobleman is blindsided by his attraction to a peasant. All the while, their neighbor – a novice spellcaster – tries to  capture her heart’s desire. Wills clash in this fight for love under the ever-present threat of Death’s scythe.
