Marin Shakespeare Company - Hey nonny nonny and wild Shakespeare!--Pacific Sun

Knight of the Burning Pestle

The plot is almost impossible to follow. A group of actors is putting on a play called "The London Merchant" when a couple of real merchants from the audience take offense and insist that their apprentice be given a part. They then proceed to make requests -- a fight scene, a seduction scene, a May Dance scene, a death scene -- as the apprentice, who has been transformed (for no apparent reason that in any way fits with the plot of "The London Merchant") into the Knight of the Burning Pestle, interrupts the increasingly frustrated "London Merchant" cast with interpolated, "improvised" scenes.
