* Midwest Premiere
Elizabeth I is tottering at death’s door. Conspirators are everywhere.
Lucius Bodkin, an Elizabethan stand-up comedian, becomes unwittingly involved in the political skullduggery and jiggery-pokery surrounding the ailing Queen. A riotously funny satirical farce in the tradition of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern and Shakespeare in Love, offering some sharp parallels with our own times.
