The Lady’s Not for Burning
By Christopher Fry
Directed by Bryan Close

@ Walkerspace, 46 Walker Street

“Shall we not suffer as wittily as we can?”

A charismatic soldier bursts through the mayor’s window demanding to be hanged. A sensual woman, condemned as a witch, flees a homicidal mob threatening bloody revolution. A beautiful virgin has the town’s young men trying to kill each other. All in all, a rough day for a medieval town equally fond of prayer and torture.  Christopher Fry’s scorching poetic comedy ignites a rousing debate on the merits of life and death, hope and despair, and courage and complicity. A rare revival of the 1950 Broadway hit.
