THE ENLIGHTENMENT OF PERCIVAL VON SCHMOOTZ
Fed up with a world filled with plagues, pestilence, and poor personal hygiene, a ridiculously optimistic young man sets out on a quest to end the Dark Ages.
As he attempts to bring the light of hope to the world, Percival von Schmootz meets with hilariously disastrous results at every turn.
It is only when things look the blackest that Percival is able to discover what true enlightenment means.
A cross between Monty Python and Candide, this outrageous satirical comedy examines the ways we search for hope in our impossibly dark circumstances.
Commissioned by The Canadian Musical Theatre Project and workshopped at Sheridan College.
