Red Noses dramatizes historic examples of how people desperately attempted to ward off the plague: debauchery, self-flagellation, prayer, fires and persecution of leapers. It also demonstrates the calculation of politics for self-preservation and the breakdown of society that occurred in 1340s. A priest comes into this world, who only desires to be useful in some way. He finds his calling (by uncovering his inner clown) and while he can't save people, he brings them a moment of joy before their ultimate deaths. We hope you enjoy Barnes' tale of a misfit group of clowns who work to change the world with a ministry of hope and joy.
