Idle Muse Theatre Company Presents: THE SCULLERY MAID - March 16th through April 9th, 2017
The Scullery Maid a Chicago premiere by Joseph Zettelmaier Directed by Evan Jackson
March 16 - April 9, 2017
Previews March 16 & 17
As King Edward celebrates an uneasy truce with France, the lowliest servant in Nottingham castle, Miriam the scullery maid, initiates a murder plot that will see him dead before the night is done - no matter the cost. Loyalties and conspiracies unravel as a raging tempest sets in, giving rise to new betrayals and unearthing long-buried secrets as Miriam approaches the point of no return. Religious, political and familial identities all clash with storm-like intensity in a medieval thriller that asks: are we defined by our prejudices or can we escape becoming what we hate?
