Four Thieves Vinegar
A Black Comedy about the Black Death
By Christine Foster
In the sweltering summer of 1665, the Plague sweeps through London. Three prisoners in Newgate Prison, believing they are doomed, indulge in drunkenness and debauchery. One of them, a young alchemist, believes he has a cure and begs his cellmates to help him make it.
Unfortunately the missing ingredient is gold, something they have no hope of obtaining without making good use of the only currencies they have at their disposal: sex, wit and lies.
Four Thieves Vinegar was written by Christine Foster and is directed and produced by Margot Jobbins. Both co-founders of Mixed Doubles, the hit show that brought 10-minute plays to Rottingdean.
Four Thieves Vinegar is on for two nights in Rottingdean, at Hillside Barn. It is also part of Brighton Fringe, with four performances at Rialto Theatre. This page is for booking tickets for the Rottingdean shows. For the Fringe performances at the Rialto, please click here.
