Additional Info

The DeFlores family runs a bizarre ragtag traveling carnival that includes Uncle Robespierre, who makes pigs disappear and likes dressing rats in doll clothes, Belladonna, who reads fortunes and dreams of yodeling men in short pants, and King George, who believes the rooks are out to kill him for eating their sister. When the cow dies during a sawing in half trick gone awry, young Bartolomeo borrows a bucket of milk and falls in love with a young lady who just wants her bucket back. Demands for blood vengeance follow in this very funny one act addition to the Pendragon plays that is ideal for presentation with Green Man.
