Bring your laughter and imagination to the Center for the Arts at the Candy Factory when Rooftop Productions opens Michael Hollinger’s, INCORRUPTIBLE on May 1-16. A poignant, quirky “dark ages” comedy with flawed and fascinating characters, INCORRUPTIBLE will tickle your funny bone. Make no bones about it, desperate times call for desperate measures and the monks of the Priseaux Abbey can’t get much more desperate. The chapel roof has collapsed, the library has been flooded, the pantry is bare, the last donkey has died and the relics of St. Foy haven’t produced a miracle in 13 years! How to help the poor, clothe the naked and feed the hungry when you haven’t a paupers portion to spare. The friars all have their crosses to bear and their faith is wavering. But the Lord will provide, and when a wandering minstrel shows up at the monastery, the friars dig up a crazy and twisted scheme that might just boil down to saving the Abbey. Step aside “Monty Python,” here comes INCORRUPTIBLE. God forgive them for what they are about to do!
