The Scullery Maid


  • The Edge Theater 5451 North Broadway Chicago, IL, 60640 United States

a Chicago Premiere by Joseph Zettelmaier                                                                

Directed by IMTC Artistic Director, Evan Jackson

As King Edward celebrates an uneasy truce with France, the lowliest servant in Nottingham castle, Miriam the scullery maid, initiates a murder plot that will see him dead before the night is done - no matter the cost.  Loyalties and conspiracies unravel as a raging tempest sets in, giving rise to new betrayals and unearthing long-buried secrets as Miriam approaches the point of no return.  Religious, political and familial identities all clash with storm-like intensity in a medieval thriller that asks:  are we defined by our prejudices or can we escape becoming what we hate?

Run Time: Approximately 2 hours, including one ten minute intermission.
