The People's Crusade: A Play
Starring EUROPE, THE BYZANTINE EMPIRE, PETER THE HERMIT and THE RABBLE


EUROPE: "Hey! There's Muslims in the Holy Land!"
BYZANTINES: "Save us, Western Europe! Christianity is at stake!"
EU: "Arr! Who will lead the army?"
PETER THE HERMIT: "Me!"
EU: "Fine."

PETER THE HERMIT raises an army of 20,000 disreputable RABBLE, none of whom know how to FIGHT, including women and children, and none of whom brought SUPPLIES


PH: "Let's go!"
RABBLE: "CRUSH...KILL...DESTROY...

RABBLE sets off to the HOLY LAND with NO FOOD, LOOTING EVERYTHING as they go


RAB: "CRUSH...KILL...DESTROY..."
EU: "Whew. Glad we're rid of those guys."

RABBLE arrives at CONSTANTINOPLE, capital of the BYZANTINE EMPIRE


PH: "Well, here we are at the city we were supposed to save."
RAB: "CRUSH...KILL...DESTROY..."

The RABBLE completely loots CONSTANTINOPLE and the surrounting countryside.


BYZ: "OUT! Go fight the Muslims, the MUSLIMS."
PH: (hastily) "Uh, let's go, guys."
RAB: "HUNGRY!"

RABBLE boards ships and sails to the Muslim-controlled lands


RAB: "CRUSH...KILL...DESTROY..."
MUS: "ARR!"

RABBLE rushes into battle, EVERY SINGLE ONE of them DIES
