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 1790s (sort of), The Coward is a knockout new comedy from Nick Jones (currently a writer for Orange Is the New Black on Netflix). Now Vance Smith directs its Midwest premiere at Theater Wit. Learn More

The show was great. Casting - near perfect (a dorky Freddie and I prefer a strong Freddie). Higgins seemed odd at first, but absolutely sold me - he created the charactor Shaw had in mind. Cannot say enough about Eliza; just wonderful. Good timing, good support charactors, good scene changes - very nice comfortable theater and seating.
The theater needs to take control of the seating. We were first in and several seats had jackets and sweaters on them; then never were used. Very odd. Some good seats seemed to be reserved by the volunteer ushers - Saints (or Angels; whatever they are called). With a sold out house, these volunteers are mostly useless; the theater needs to manage their seating with a full house.

This show’s running time is two hours, with an intermission.
