About this show

Roundheads and Peakheads is a story of the mythical land of Yahoo, a country on the brink of civil war. The government is run by wealthy landholders who are facing an uprising from their poor tenants who are unable to pay their rent. In order to prevent their own overthrow, the landholders devise a scheme to trick the poor into fighting with each other. They tell the poor Roundheads that all of their problems are due to the minority Peakheads. There begins a story of class and race warfare that serves nobody but the wealthy and powerful. Originally based on Measure for Measure, this seldom-produced piece is sure to resonate with audiences today
