About The Amateurs:

A scrappy troupe of pageant players races across 14th-century Europe, struggling to outrun the Black Death — and medieval subscribers. The arrival of a mysterious new actor sends Hollis, the leading lady, in search of answers that can only be found off-script… and soon one century's plague begins to look a lot like another, more recent, one. This wildly inventive and funny new work examines the origins of creativity: When does a crisis destroy art, and when does it set it spinning?

Our The Amateurs Review

Well, the title of the play is a fit. The Amateurs is a well-meant play that, with the exception of a mildly interesting mid-section monologue, remains no more than well-meant. The actors are unable to transform this loose knit tale into anything resembling whole cloth. And it is not for lack of trying.
