The Plague Master General

(a bubonic comedy)


A devastating health crisis needs a hero.

He's not it.

“The Plague Master General (a bubonic comedy),” is a bitingly funny and cynical look at a kingdom that handles, mishandles, and ignores an impending and obvious catastrophe.


It’s the mid-1300s (give or take) and a deadly plague no one understands is engulfing Europe. Thankfully, they’ve found someone who’s going to cure it. Is he a doctor? A scholar? A debonair hero with charisma and can-do spirit? Absolutely not. But thanks to a powerful baron, a terrifying baroness, and a doctor-priest who couldn’t be bothered, our “hero" now has a life-or-death responsibility for which he is entirely unqualified.


This new dark comedy mashes “The Crucible” with Monty Python to explore the dangers of hubris, apathy, and blind faith in the healing power of leeches.

Subject matter contains graphic bloody themes, foul language, and references to death

The story

The author

Greg is terrified you're coming to see his play. He has been on the producing team of Blue Hour for two years now and is hoping to be allowed back for another term. He has credits as a performer, writer, director, fight coordinator, stage manager, stage hand, and usher in Seattle and New York going back to the turn of the century. The Village Voice once called his singing "cat howlingly bad" and he's never fully recovered from that. Many thanks to all the readers along the way (paid exclusively in bagels and coffee) and the rest of Blue Hour for putting in so much time and effort to make this chaos happen.
