FLEA the PANDEMIC   Dorset 1348  
by Sue Ashby
In 1348 a ship arrives at Melcombe Regis carrying goods from China, having visited ports across Europe.  A flea comes ashore, carrying the plague.  Dorset folk are the first to experience the unknown illness that will spread across the whole country.

Flea the Pandemic mixes history and humour to look at the rich and the poor, the powerful and the essential workers – and wonder why little has changed in 672 years.

Taboo Theatre Company has worked in partnership with The Exchange to create an original, socially-distanced, play.  This is Taboo’s third play using Dorset history and the lives of ordinary people:  join us in celebrating the re-opening of the Stour Hall for public, socially-distanced, performance.

Pre-booking only. £12.00.
