The Vineyard Theater celebrated the opening of Jordan Harrison’s new play The Amateurs, the story of a rag-tag group of pageant players attempting to outrun the Black Death in 14th-century Europe, February 27. Through an unexpected twist, The Amateurs also examines the value of art and creativity in the face of a crisis.
