MBA Theater to Perform Knight of the Burning Pestle
February 20 – 23
The Knight of the Burning Pestleby Francis Beaumont. This play within a play from 1607 is a boisterous and satirical collision of citizen drama and chivalric, courtly romance. A grocer and his wife interrupt The London Merchant, wreaking havoc on the production and causing the addition of a new character, a “knight” who will uphold the honor of the grocery business. This hilarious burlesque of Elizabethan London life in five acts will be performed under the direction of Malcolm Morrison with full musical accompaniment. Performance times: Thursday & Friday at 6:30 p.m.; Saturday at 7:00 p.m.; Sunday at 2:00 p.m. $10 for adults & $5 for students. MBA Faculty, Staff & Students are free.
