Overview

A modern retelling of a spirited and lusty chapter in The Canterbury Tales , this addition to the author's cycle of Pendragon plays is set in 1972. The disreputable Reeves family has rented the decaying Pendragon mansion in east Ohio. Strange happenings begin to plague the family's crude and brutal patriarch and his angry wife, luscious daughter and demented grandfather-in-law as well as their two boarders, both lustful college drop-outs. Eerie colors appear in the yard at night, trees seem to move around, animals disappear and there is something at the bottom of the well. This funny and frightening work was first produced in New York by the Red Moon Ensemble.
