What is the Story of Medieval Play?
Set in France in the early 14th century, Medieval Play is the comic story of Sir Ralph, a mercenary knight who dreams of the chivalric ideal, but spends his days murdering villagers and pillaging their homes. Sir Ralph enlists his friend, fellow knight Sir Alfred, to help search for true meaning in their lives on a wacky pilgrimage complete with swordfights, sex, spitting on the floor and using the bathroom pretty much wherever they feel like it. On their journey, the knights meet a variety of kooky medieval characters including Catherine of Siena, Cardinal Robert of Geneva, Pope Clement VII, Pope Gregory XI and more.
