A Tudor Moral Interlude by R. Wever
Lusty Juventus is a short mid-16th century Moral Interlude of the “Prodigal Son” type, telling the story of a young man tempted by the joys of the flesh. It was written during the brief reign of Henry VIII’s son Edward VI for a small troupe of travelling players, as the title page states “Four may play it easily.” PLS Artistic Director Linda Phillips has created a new modern-spelling script for this production.
Professor Alexandra F. Johnston will give a brief introduction about the political and religious context of the play, and there will be a short Q&A after each performance.
