The Overtime puts a new twist on black humor with its latest production, a slapstick comedy set during the peak of the bubonic plague. Between the Black Death and the Hundred Years’ War, the characters of Black don’t have much room to maneuver if they want to live, and an untimely death at Castle Binbury further complicates matters. As the men of the castle prepare to leave for war, the lady of the house tries to cover up her husband’s passing with an elaborate ruse. Could such a harebrained plan really work? Lives, and worse – reputations – are at stake!
