The Knight of the Burning Pestle

The Knight of the Burning PestleT1772470234
Mrs. Herring the grocer s wife may not know much about ‘the art of theatre , but she knows what she likes - and she insists upon getting it. She doesn t want to see lewdness, violence, incest and murder - she can get all that at home! She likes valiant knights and heroic quests and damsels in distress and romantic love stories and happy endings - and most of all she likes her husband s apprentice, Ralph...Beaumont and Fletcher were the Two Ronnies of Jacobean theatre and, in their day, more popular and more performed than Shakespeare. In this, the most irreverent of their many collaborations, they joyfully throw together a rich cast of their finest comic creations for an evening of sheer fun.
Author Francis Beaumont
