Theatre is Forever Lit with a Little Help from the City Lit Theater Company

Babes With Blades Theatre Company (BWBTC) starts its 21st Season with the world premiere of The Lady Demands Satisfaction, playing at City Lit Theater. Winner of the most recent Joining Sword and Pen Competition, this play is written by Arthur M. Jolly, directed by Morgan Manasa with combat by Samantha Kaufman.

In The Lady Demands Satisfaction, a young maiden, Trothe, learns that her entire inheritance will be forfeit to anyone that bests her in a duel. Trothe must turn to the finest blade anywhere, (luckily, her Aunt Theodosia) if she is to save her house and lands. In addition to her aunt, she is helped and hindered by two of her favorite servants - whose well-intentioned meddling could create an international incident when a famous German sword master arrives on the scene.

True to farcical tradition, identities and intentions are mistaken, comedy and sword fighting ensue, and all get the just end they deserve—even if it's not the one the audience expects. Don’t miss it at this City Lit Theater Company production!
