Lochmere's MidWinter's Revel
January 19, 2013
Barony of Lochmere

In the year of 1576, Their Excellencies of Lochmere called upon Gli Zelanti, The Zealous Ones, to perform at their court. A year later, Gli Zelanti traveled through the Bright Hills rendering them captured. The Huguenots suspected, ransom demanded! If Their Excellencies had wanted to see more than the heads of their beloved actors, they had better release all the Huguenots prisoners and pay 10,000 gold florins and 50,000 silver. Baron and Baroness of Lochmere complied. Their Excellencies sent out invitations, inviting one and all to their great hall for the evening performance of Gli Zelanti upon their freedom.  The church however shakes their head for it is such troupes teach such scandalous shenanigans. Do not be surprised if you see the church out and about warning the populace of attending such performances. If it was the way of the church, Theatre would be banned and for good, except for their moral plays, of course. You know how Everyman is, right? Feast will be French and Italian let alone scrumptiously good.  Bring a date, have dinner and theatre with a most delicious meal created by Sir Christian Darmody and Lady Lisette La Roux and his devoted staff. (This little “scenario” really happened with the troupe I Gelosi.)
