Set in 1348 and focuses on a group of Italians who flee from the plague in Florence, retire in a garden and pass the time telling stories. They pass the time and distract themselves by telling story after story about love in all its guises – tragic, romantic, comic and bawdy. Each story is introduced by one person and then acted out by the whole company. (Based on the book of the same name).
This play was part of a double bill with DAYS HERE SO DARK.
