Our second dark comedy of the season, where Shakespeare's cross dressers meet Monty Python's blithering knights at the end of the first millennium, Princess Ymma of Normandy was forced by England's King Ethelred to marry a young Viking, Lord Silence of Cumbria. This fourteen year old doesn't realize that he is really a she. Bride and groom forge a pact to keep this secret and exploit Silence's male advantages, but events conspire to send them dashing through the mud of England fleeing an enraged despot's murderous rampage.
