The Reckoning of Kit & Little Boots
by Nat Cassidy
directed by Neal J. Freeman
PLEASE NOTE THAT FINAL THREE PERFS (JUNE 17-21) ARE AT MANHATTAN THEATRE SOURCE **NOT** AT THE GALLERY PLAYERS. See websites for details. The Reckoning of Kit & Little Boots is a fiery, impassioned, hallucinatory, comedic, and ultimately poignant exploration of the art of writing, what it is that calls an author to a particular subject, and the dangers that lie in the obsessions of a creative mind. As Christopher Marlowe lies bleeding to death from a fatal knife-wound to the face, his life flashes before his eyes (or, rather, eye). His host for this journey is his own personal Mephistopheles, a character about whom he never got the chance to write: the infamous Roman emperor, Caligula.
