The Lady Demands Satisfaction
by Arthur M. Jolly

This Memorial Day Weekend, join us under the stars for Acme’s annual Free Comedy in the Park – a sword-slinging, family-friendly,  queer-down-to-our-toes, feminist, farce!


Trothe Pepperston is a young maiden who has never touched a sword.  But the sudden death of her uncle plunges her head-long into an epic battle to defend her inheritance.  Along the way, she struggles with a milksop suitor, a servant girl posing as a Prussian fencing master, the actual Prussian fencing master who believes he is there to marry her, a stodgy lord, and her sword-master aunt.  


Audience members are encouraged to bring their own lawn-chairs or blankets.  Warm layers are strongly encouraged - Act 2 is more fun if you are cozy! 


Covid-19 Safety Protocols

At this outdoor performance, actors will not be masked.  Audience members may choose to sit in our “Masks Required” section (near the stage) or our “Masks Optional” section (on the hills).
