Lickspittles, Buttonholers and Damned Pernicious Go-Betweens     

By Johnna Adams |  Directed by John Hurley

May 1st-17th, 2015 at Teatro Circulo


Three extraneous Danish court officials: a professional loud mouth (the buttonholer), a kiss ass for hire (the lickspittle) and a successful dastard (the go-between) are tossed out of court just as Denmark’s merchant fleet becomes of strategic importance in the Napoleonic war. The three men journey to France and meet Napoleon’s top lickspittle, buttonholer and go-between, their female counterparts. Plots abound, flying machines are destroyed and the head of Marie Antoinette is discovered during the madcap struggle to save Copenhagen from British howitzers. In a rhyming, metered world, the offbeat rules.
