Simply put: In the 18th century, you could not call a man's horse "fat" and get away with it. Young Lucidus, however, wishes the opposite was true in The Coward. Hounded by his honor-obsessed father, Lucidus is pressured into dueling over the equine slight. Not cut out for such sordid stuff -- he's more into entomology and tea -- the young nobleman hires a common criminal to fight in his place ... only to have the scoundrel make a bloody mess of things. A series of duels follows and Lucidus, to his dismay, finds his "fearsome" reputation exceeding his wildest expectations. Though set in the 1790's (sort of), The Coward is a knockout new comedy from Nick Jones (creator of the acclaimed "pyrate puppet rock opera" Jollyship the Whiz-Bang). Now Vance Smith directs its Midwest premiere at Theater Wit. Learn More

Victory Gardens is a wonderful theatre. All seats are good. I think they need to clarify what a Red Carpet member means; the seats did not appear to be the best discount seats available. The show was very good. Always a special treat to get such a strong star in the lead role. The two supporting actors were equally strong. A difficult story of human rights following the overthrow of the Pinochet government in Chili. We found ourselves completely involved with the story. No clean conclusions can be taken from the story, but the discussion on the way home was quite lively. If you enjoy a serious story; you will enjoy this performance.
