From Press Release
A Plague Upon the Doctor’s House is a new play by Jamie D. Rose and is premiering this summer at the 2019 Toronto Fringe Festival. It is a dark comedy set in England sometime during the 18th century. There is murder. There is thievery. And there is, of course, the plague.
The action starts when a doctor is murdered by his own wife, just before the unexpected arrival of a highwayman, his sister, and her soon to be husband. The highwayman, Thomas, is looking to say goodbye to his mother. His sister, Gretchen, to announce her marriage and steal away the inheritance. All while Amy pretends that she — and not her dead husband — is, in fact, the doctor.
Written and directed by Jamie D. Rose and featuring Hannah Leigh Ehman as Amy, Andrew Camerone as Thomas, Emma Nelles as Gretchen, Nick Eddie as Bradley, and Ctherine Teichman as Sister Anne. You can follow the production on instagram @PlagueFringeTO.
