THE MOST LAMENTABLE

AND TRAGICAL HISTORIE

OF THE BARBER-SURGEONS

World Premiere production photos by Aaron Epstein

A grotesque romp through Medieval Medicine! Featuring Groundbreaking grave robbers! Screaming, Sex-addicted Royals! Talking Rats from the Future! Obnoxious Frenchmen! And Independent Women! Tasked with saving the whole of England after a Plague of Unknown Origin ravages the Land, two intrepid Barber-Surgeons must face the Impossible (and do the Unthinkable) in a pitch-black Comedy of Terrors that dares to ask: Can the Cure really be worse than the Disease? Are there limits to Scientific Inquiry? Is Elizabeth really a Virgin Queen? And just what on Earth are we going to do with all these Severed Limbs?!?!

World Premiere on August 22, 2008 at  the Peter Jay Sharp Theater at Playwrights Horizons
