Undermain Theatre will present the world premiere of The Droll (Or, a Stage Play about the END of Theatre) by Meg Miroshnik.
Seduced by the magic of the Stage, young Nim Dullyn seeks to join an illegal theatrical troupe - pursued by the beastly Roundheads, who deem theater an abomination during this time of sickness and troubles. The Droll (Or, a Stage Play about the END of Theatre) imagines a world in which theater is banned, but one troupe resists by organizing a clandestine performance of Hamlet.
Inspired by the theater closures of Puritan England, The Droll asks: What evil would you do in the name of laughter?
