February 21 – 29, 2020

It’s opening night for Taranto Theatre’s new play, a comedy of star-crossed lovers from house playwright Phil Payton. But when the donor whose grant is keeping the struggling company from bankruptcy decides she has some changes to suggest, Phil and the rest of the company must adapt, as their simple romance is complicated by the addition of a new character, an unpredictable knight… the knight of the Burning Pestle.
