Two French mercenary knights set out on a quest for relative moral redemption against the classic comic background of late 14th century ecclesiastical politics. A story of friendship, love, noble feats of arms, indiscriminate brutality, the progressive refinement of medieval table manners and the general decline of the chivalric ideal at the onset of the Great Papal Schism of 1378.
A new comedy by Kenneth Lonergan.
How do you stage a half-naked fight with broadswords? And make it funny? We ask Medeival Play's fight director how he brought the show's combat to life.
