The cast is: Ben Aylesworth (Olf); Jake Disser (Felix); Christina Fleetwood (Marie); Craig Gustafson (Martin); Jay Pauer (Jack); Rob Reinalda (Charles); Janette Spink (Agatha); Annie Walker-Bright (Peasant Woman).
Incorruptible is directed by Tom Walker, assisted by production managers Jim and Kate Quan. Amy Johnson is the stage manager.
Incorruptible takes place in Priseaux, France, c.1250 A.D. The river flooded again, the chandler’s shop just burned to the ground, and Ste. Foy, the patron of the local monastery, hasn’t worked a miracle in thirteen years. Yes, the Dark Ages are still dark. But there is hope! The Pope promises a visit that will surely encourage other pilgrims to make the trek and restore the abbey to its former glory. But, a rival church claims to possess the relics of Ste. Foy and these relics are working miracles. All seems lost until the destitute monks take a lesson from a larcenous one-eyed minstrel who teaches them an outrageous new way to pay old debts. This is a Monty-Python type show.
Performances of Incorruptible are September 16 through October 9, 2011. Shows are Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 3pm. Incorruptible is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc.
Wheaton Drama’s 2011-2012 season will also include On Golden Pond, Bad Seed, Black Comedy, and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.
