On a stormy night in mid 1600's England, we find two travelers caught away from home. They seek refuge at a country estate on their way to London, where they meet a gracious host who offers them shelter for the night. During the course of the evening, a challenge is issued between the men with a sum to be settled upon the victor. The wager: Can literature be frightening?
This fast paced play will take you on a visual trip through time exploring plays, stories, poetry and music. Our goal is to entertain you, scare you, and show you that - although it might have been written by some old crusty dead guys who talk funny - it can still send a chill up your spine!
This Baron's Men production is brought to life in a scale copy of the Globe theatre called The Curtain Theater. Join us for an evening of renaissance costumes, singing, dancing and merriment under the beautiful stars on the shores of Lake Austin.
