Off Square Theatre Company in Jackson produces the world premiere of the newest play by Jackson Hole’s Bob Berky, “The Fourth Nail,” a scorching Dark Ages comedy about fear, fraud and faith. Performances will be held at 7 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays April 24 through May 10.
The year is 1099. The European Crusaders have overrun and sacked the holy city of Jerusalem and established the first Christian Kingdom in Palestine. Two battered Crusaders return to Prague laden with “holy relics” – the widow’s peak of John The Baptist, a grape from the Last Supper, bird seed from the pocket of St. Francis, and lots of thumbs – but their desire for wealth collides with their own fears of death and uncertainty.Period costumes and sets depict a medieval knight’s shop, a king’s bedroom and an alchemist’s lab – complete with explosions!
