Connective Theatre Company is committed to telling stories that connect reason and emotion, provoke critical consciousness, and facilitate a path to action.
About the play: In a plague-ravaged 17th century London, a wealthy couple is about to be released from a four-week quarantine when a young girl and a sailor sneak into their home. The wealthy couple is re-quarantined in close quarters with these two "plague refugees" for 28 days. Tension, mistrust, and a clash of cultural, social, and sexual boundaries rise to the surface in this fiercely dark comedy. Produced in partnership with RefugeeOne.
