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

As a writer I was very interested in the theme of this play. Interesting characters and dynamics. Ironically, it's the writing that's lacking here. The performances were all outstanding and the direction was good but the story loses momentum...continued
