How would you like to kill an Emperor?
Niccolo lives in a small apartment above a tailor shop in a city ruled by a mad shoe tycoon. Otto Maher lives in a mansion by the river. He runs the city. He should not.
A few years ago Otto tore Niccolo’s life apart. And now, as the tyrant prepares to stage the world’s first one-man coup, fastening his hold on the people, they turn to Niccolo. They tell him he can have his revenge. They tell him only he can stop the shoe maker, for one reason alone: Niccolo is a very good tailor.
Including butchered excerpts from Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, Titus Andronicus and Much Ado About Nothing, with a little Bukowski in there mainly just to fuck with you, Black Fox Theatre’s Emperor is a study of tyranny and amnesia.
