One Flea Spare

by Naomi Wallace
directed by Meg Taintor

February 5-21, 2010

“What are you doing out of your grave?
What happened to the Gentleman?
What happened to his wife?
Whose blood is on your sleeve?”

London. Plague year.

On the last day of their quarantine, a wealthy couple’s house is invaded by two strangers – a sailor and a girl who might not be what she seems. And so another month of quarantine begins. Watched over by their jailor, these four with nothing in common must find a way to survive both the plague and each other. Alliances and betrayal, bargains and games.

This searing and lyrical drama explores the politics of compassion within the shadow of the grave.

Winner of the 1996 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize,
the 1996 Fellowship of Southern Writers Drama Award,
the 1996 Kesselring Prize, and the 1997 Obie Award for Best Play.
