Father Flote gets permission from the cynical Pope Clement VI to tour Christendom with a clown show that will distract the faithful from the fact that people are going to bed healthy and waking up dead; and the fact that the Church and State don't have a clue as to what to do about it. Does God want us to feel awful about being human and therefore in a mood to punish others for being the same? Or are we to look on our fellow stumblebums with the amused tolerance that we would give Father Flote and his All Thumbs Theater Company?
"Peter Barnes' tragicomic romp about the Black Death calls to mind some of the choicest episodes of Black Adder, with the hilarious plague humor of Monty Python's The Holy Grail thrown in." —Laura Weinert, Backstage
