One Flea Spare by Naomi Wallace at Old Red Lion 29 Mar
Red Dog and Act Up presents One Flea Spare, by Naomi Wallace, at the Old Red Lion, a fringe venue in Angel, north London, 29 Mar to 16 Apr 2011.
The Black Death, London. On the last day of their month-long quarantine, a wealthy couple’s home is invaded by two strangers – a wandering sailor and a mysterious young girl. The couple is forced to endure another 28 days of confinement, this time with their new companions. Unlikely bargains are struck and brutal games are played out in this searing and lyrical drama exploring the politics of compassion, all within the shadow of the grave.
