In 17th-century London, a city ravaged by the Great Plague with bodies mounting, the home of wealthy aristocrat William Snelgrave and his invalid wife becomes the couple’s infirmary, until a pair of intruders break in demanding food and refuge. Resigned to quarantine together, this unlikely group sees the social paradigms that once defined their behavior begin to break down. Roles shift, boundaries are shattered, and passions erupt in Naomi Wallace’s gripping 1995 drama.

Originally inspired by the intersecting themes between Daniel Dafoe’s Journal of the Plague Year and the L.A. race riots catalyzed by the police beating of Rodney King, Wallace blends past and present – starkly pertinent given today’s current climate with COVID-19 and lingering tensions after the murder of George Floyd and subsequent riots in 2020. One Flea Spare explores how different types of oppression intersect across our timelines, always condemning the excesses of capitalism and imperialism.
