The Knight of the Burning Pestle

Elizabethan Theater lands at iDIOM with a rarely produced 7th century satire full of equal parts chivalry and whimsy in a disorderly, theatrical romp. 

The Knight of the Burning Pestle, written by Francis Beaumont and adapted for the iDiOM stage by director, Glenn Hergenhahn-Zhao. 

Dates: February 8th - March 2 at 7:30pm 

As an acting troupe begins their scheduled performance of a show called “The London Merchant”, two audience members jump onstage and demand their apprentice be written into a new storyline. Chaos follows as the actors attempt to incorporate ever more fanciful suggestions. This rarely performed comedy written in 1607 by a friend of Shakespeare’s is a joyride of a play and a love letter to theatrical invention. Perfect for all audiences. 

iDiOM's biggest show of the season! More details:

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
