The Taming of the Breakfast Club, is a mash-up of 80’s-cult classic films and faux-Elizabethan language; about which the Bard woulds't undoubtedly state: "Doth thou wanteth me to puke?"
The Taming of the the Breakfast Club features, five preparatory students, in Shermer Castle; Shermshire, in the house of Illy O' Noise, 1584. These over age'd children doth endureth-eth a Saturday detention (of our souls) under a power-hungry principal, The Duke of Vernon. The disparate groupe includes: Sir Andrew, (the Sport-o-Cus) Dame Clare, (a Lady Right Royal) Lady Allison ( a Basket O' Case) , Sir Brian (A "Midsummer's Cream") and The Knave (John) Bender. Each has a chance to tell his or her story, making the others see them a little differently -- and when the day ends (as the cock doth crow) they question whether school, Olde Londony town, or their wits will ever be the same.
Featuring: Katie Motta, Krista Muir, Steve Bologna, Gordon Bell, Robert Levy, Joanna Mahaffy and Alfred Muller as Knave Bender.
