The Tragedy of Orpheus: A Comedy
The Jester hires his aunt’s acting troupe to perform at court, but what he doesn’t know is that the “acting troupe” is really his aunt’s sewing circle.

The Jester desperately tries to improve his auntie’s acting troupe as they perform the Greek tragedy of Orpheus and Eurydice, but the results are a hilarious disaster!
