Knight of the Burning Pestle

Directed by Robert Currier

by Beaumont & Fletcher

Darren Bridgett in Knight of the Burning Pestle

Producer’s Perspective:

The visionary Ralph Cohen, whose dedication and chutzpah led to the building of a stunning recreation of the Blackfriar's Theatre in Staunton, VA, had been talking up "The Knight of the Burning Pestle" ever since we met him. He promised it was a tremendously funny play that would be outrageous fun to produce. When Ralph revived his production and we had a chance to see it for ourselves, we became
inclined to agree with him. The play is unique. It wouldn't be until "Six Characters in Search of An Author" that the English-speaking stage again saw such a revolutionary breach of the audience/actor dichotomy.
