Winter Show "Incorruptible"
Michael Hollinger's Incorruptible is a sly, sharp-tongued tale that skewers religious hierarchy and material worship in a French monastery, 1250 AD.
The monks are in a funk. The bones of their patron, St. Foy, haven't produced a miracle in thirteen years. As a result, the pilgrims have stopped visiting and the money has stopped flowing. They can hardly feed and clothe themselves, let alone help the villagers in need.
All eyes turn to the Pope, whose promised visit will surely encourage other pilgrims to make the trek and restore the monastery to its former glory. That is until a rival abbey claims that they possess the relics of St. Foy and the faithful rush to witness a slew of well-publicized miracles. The enraged monks become desperate and are easy prey for a scheming one-eyed, wandering minstrel and his lusty mistress.
Throwing caution (and honesty) to the wind, the monks launch a mail order bones business selling false relics to religious orders throughout Europe. Prosperity abounds, but the going gets tough when they have to produce an "incorruptible," that is, a body of an expired saint that resists decay. Throughout the farce, Hollinger sprinkles memorable one-liners and plenty of rollicking action as he explores the age-old question, "Do the ends justify the means?"

Character Breakdown: 5 adult men
Charles (Male 50+)
The Abbot of Priseaux, serene and idealistic but questioning his choice of old and new. Charles leads with a quiet authority and is deeply sincere in his desire to aid the local needy.
Brother Martin (Male, 30-50)
He is second in command at the monastery. Mattin is cynical, sarcastic, and a realist facing a big problem. He often feels he is the only brother who is able to see the severity of the monestary's problems and believes that his colleagues are too kind, dim or distracted to help him solve them.
Brother Olf: (Male, 20-40)
A large, strong, dim-witted novice. Olf is well meaning and eager to help the monastery in any conceivable way.
Brother Felix (Male, 20-40)
He is a young novice, romantic in nature and drawn to women despite his vows. Felix hides a romantic secret but is fully sincere in his desire to serve the monastery.
Jack (Male, 20-35)
A juggling, tumbling, one-eyed minstrel (must juggle and tumble, missing eye is negotiable.) Jack dreams of owning a bakery and is willing to do whatever it takes to bring his dream to fruition.
