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

I attended a preview performance but did not notice any major flaws. The play itself addresses some very heavy topics, so be prepared. I was sort of confused in the first half, but the story unfolded in the second. The acting overall was ok, but the main character, Carl, was excellent. I felt that Jenny found her stride in the second half as well. Overall I love Theater Wit and I come just to see what they have to offer.

Interesting plot, fine acting (overall). Script was weakened by paying too much attention to the fishing metaphor, and not enough to the real theme of economic desperation. Lead character's descent from lovable uncle to violent vigilante was hard...continued
