One Flea Spare

Nox Arca Theatre
4001 N. Ravenswood #405 Chicago

In a plague-ravaged 17th century London, a wealthy couple is about to be released from a four-week quarantine when a young girl and a sailor sneak into their home. The wealthy couple is re-quarantined in close quarters with these two "plague refugees" for 28 days. Tension, mistrust, and a clash of cultural, social, and sexual boundaries rise to the surface in this fiercely dark comedy by Naomi Wallace. Directed by Brian Zane and Ashley Joy; produced in partnership with RefugeeOne.

Presented by Connective Theatre Company

Chicago Theatre Review - Highly Recommended

"...Connective Theatre Company has debuted on the Chicago storefront theatre scene with its inaugural production of One Flea Spare by Naomi Wallace. For this production, Connective Theatre Company has partnered with RefugeeOne (a local refugee resettlement organization) to raise awareness about refugee displacement. Co-directed by Brian Zane (who also treads the stage in this production) and Ashley Joy, the play takes place in 17th century London and unfurls over the course of 28 days. If this first show is indicative of the work to come from this company, then itís a plague that Iíll gladly get infected by."
