Naomi Wallace's drama set during the Black Death. Read More >

One Spare Flea is set in London during the Black Death.

On the last day of their month-long quarantine, a wealthy couple’s home is invaded by two strangers – a wandering sailor and a mysterious young girl.

The couple is forced to endure another 28 days of confinement, this time with their new companions.  Unlikely bargains are struck and brutal games are played out in this searing and lyrical drama exploring the politics of compassion, all within the shadow of the grave.
