Presented by the ANW Resident Artists as part of Noise Now

An intrepid troupe of pageant players races across medieval Europe, struggling to outrun the Black Death. The arrival of a mysterious outsider sends Hollis, the leading lady, in search of answers that can only be found off-script…and soon the 14th century plague begins to look like another, more recent one. This wildly inventive and funny new work examines the evolution of human creativity in a dark age: when does a crisis destroy us, and when does it open new frontiers?

“The Amateurs” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc.
