Lickspittles, Buttonholers, And Damned Pernicious Go-Betweens

by Johnna Adams

Directed by Chase Tomberlin
Produced by Jim Russell

A CWP Black Box Staged Reading

May 20, 21, and 22, 2022

During the Napoleonic wars, three extraneous Danish court officials—a professional loudmouth (the buttonholer), a brown-noser for hire (the lickspittle), and a successful dastard (the go-between)—are tossed out of court just as Denmark’s merchant fleet becomes of strategic importance.

The three men journey to France and meet Napoleon’s top lickspittle, buttonholer, and go-between—who are females.

Unnecessarily complex plots abound, flying machines are destroyed, and the head of Marie Antoinette is discovered during the madcap struggle to save Copenhagen from British howitzers.

With an extraordinary use of rhyming alexandrine verse, plus cameos by sestina, haiku, free verse, limericks, and sonnets, this wild farce is a delightful romp no matter your poetic preferences.

Presented with the support of the Arts Council of Hillsborough County and the Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners.

Lickspittles, Buttonholers and Damned Pernicious Go-Betweens is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, New York.
