The Unfortunate Cutthroats
The Unfortunate Cutthroats, a New Dark Comedy by Vagabond
Vagabond Theatre Group presents Unfortunate Cutthroats, an original play by Boston playwright Zach Winston and directed by James Peter Sotis. This black comedy takes place aboard the pirate ship Steadfast. The few remaining crew under the mad Captain McCarthy resent his refusal to seek help, food or the shore. When McCarthy's nemesis, Captain Lefty (now quoting Bible verses instead of slicing throats) commandeers the ship, loyalties start to crumble. Soon civility disappears and the crew turns upon itself when it is revealed that one of their own might be working for the law.

“We’re thrilled to premiere another Boston playwright this year,” said Artistic Director James Peter Sotis. “After our enormous success with last year’s premiere of Bea Wissel’s IRNEnominated Burning the Barn, we are delighted to showcase a new local playwright again this summer. We first recognized Zach’s creativity when he performed as Mairtin Hanlon in VTG’s 2009 production of Martin McDonagh’s A Skull in Connemara and we’re glad to have helped him develop this play. His sharp focus on wit and wordplay really highlights the plays themes of honor, trust, and communication.”
