Image from The Miracle at Naples

"SUBLIME! A MIRACLE IN ITSELF! A grand time — crude, rude, and deliciously lewd! A clever script and appealing cast helmed with style by Peter DuBois." — Variety

"Fantastic! Raunchy potent comedy! The audience is having a blast!" — The Boston Herald

"Unbelievably clever! Exquisite comic timing! Wonderfully acted and beautifully directed. You'll laugh so hard!" — "Greater Boston," WGBH

"The Miracle at Naples is screamingly funny, and the play's bawdiness and boisterousness is matched by its emotional depth and wit. Set in 16th century Naples where the sacred and the profane exist side by side, it is a true celebration of food, sex, love, passion, and language. It puts all of these exciting things into one pot and turns it up on high." — Peter DuBois

A band of traveling commedia players in Renaissance Italy ignites the passions of the locals when they arrive to perform at the Feast of San Gennaro. A series of lovers romp through the town piazza seeking pleasure and finding love in this outrageously smart and bawdy comedy from David Grimm (Measure for Pleasure and Kit Marlowe).

“If culture is a conversation, then the works of David Grimm are a roaring dinner party.” – American Theatre Magazine

Approximate run time: 2 hours and 15 minutes, including one intermission
