Gaslight Baker Theatre presents Incorruptible
The Gaslight Baker Theatre presents Michael Hollinger's bawdy farce Incorruptible, a dark comedy about the Dark Ages satirizing the fragility of faith in the face of survival.
Welcome to Priseaux, France, c.1250 A.D. The river flooded again last week; the chandler's shop just burned to ground ... and St. Foy, the patron of the local monastery hasn't worked a miracle in 13 years. All eyes are turned to the Pope whose promised visit will surely encourage other pilgrims to make the trek and restore the monastery to its former glory, but then a rival church claims to possess the relics of St. Foy and "their bones" are working miracles. All seems lost until the destitute monks take a lesson from a larcenous one-eyed minstrel who teaches them an outrageous new way to pay old debts.
