'One Flea Spare: A Black (Plague) Comedy'
Springs Ensemble Theatre (SET) is reopening its doors to live, in-person audiences with One Flea Spare by Naomi Wallace.
Set in Plague-ravaged London in 1665 and directed by Sarah Sheppard Shaver, the play examines issues of class, intimacy, morality, and survival. The wealthy Snelgraves (Dylan Mosley and Alysabeth Clements Mosley) have only hours left of a 28-day quarantine when their home is invaded by a sailor, Bunce (Micah Speirs), and a feral 12-year-old girl, Morse (Kate Hertz), who claims to be the only surviving child of neighbors. With the arrival of the newcomers, the Snelgraves’ quarantine, enforced by the corrupt guardsman Kabe (Jeremiah Walter), must begin all over again. The only thing these strangers fear more than the Plague is each other.
This play contains adult language and scenes portraying violence and intimacy.
Tickets may be purchased at springsensembletheatre.org or by calling (719) 357-3080.
