The naughtiest bardic is back! Share your dirtiest ditties! Your lewd lyrics! Entendres, double or otherwise, are not only welcomed but encouraged! If you're over 18, come join us in the Vingolf on Friday night for laughter and song. Seating is limited, but space, not so much. So bring a chair and stay a while. As a bonus, you can stake out your spot for the i Firenzi' show. Come entertain and be entertained! Over 18 only please!

i' Firenzi brings a special commedia dell' arte show to War of the Wings for the 4th year in a row! This show is special because we use content that is document-able to SCA period but not acceptable at our regular family-friendly shows. This year's content centers on the requirement for Italian noble women to be virgins when they are married in the 16th century and what happens when they're not! Come see what happens when Isabella loses her virginity... and so does everyone else! The show starts at 9:30pm on Friday night in Vingolf Hall. Come early to get a good seat and enjoy a Naughty Bardic experience with Lady Ky starting at 9pm. There is an age limitation to these performances. All audience members must be 18 years old or older. If a younger person wants to watch the show, they may come with a parent as long as both the young person and parent have had a serious conversation BEFORE THE SHOW with the i Firenzi Director, Baroness Sophia the Orange, to ensure that they understand the adult content of the show.
