Two medieval Lords trying to decide what type of tea to drink are interrupted by a serf who is hysterical about barbarians laying siege to the castle.
As the Barbarians draw nearer, the serf grows more frenzied while the Lords converse on women and boulder heavers.
When the Barbarians arrive, will raw muscle rule over culture and etiquette?
Hysterical moments and hilarious revelations climax in a powerful statement on who the Barbarians are among us.
"Communication skills are a must for Medieval Lords"
"Happy serfs = Happy Kingdom"
"Go out and Knock!"
"To what really matters!"
Yes! Females can be Medieval Lords too! (Missy Lanza & Erin Butler)

THE LAST TIME I SAW TIMMY BOGGS
by Catherine Butterfield

THE BARBARIANS ARE COMING by Luigi Jannuzzi

Two feudal lords are debating the merits of various types of tea when they are interrupted by a serf hysterically babbling about a siege on their castle. The play explores the question of whether raw muscle will rule over culture and etiquette. Who are the barbarians among us?
