“Braveheart doesn’t have anything on Chickenheart!  Faced with marriage to the despicable Sir Cutbert Cleever, Lady Emma does what any liberated medieval woman would do — she runs!  Lady Emma and her maid, May, disguise themselves and hide out at the Abbey of the Little Sisters of St. Meade.  But Sir Cutbert, the king’s tax collector, tracks his betrothed to her hiding place, where the six members of the order are having their own problems.  First, Sir Cutbert is determined to take over the abbey, which owes him tax money, and make it his home.  Second, a strange green light has affected the Mother Abbess, making her jive talk and spout knock-knock jokes.  Norman, the frightened tailor nicknamed Chickenheart, is following Sir Cutbert, because he has sewn the tax collector’s wedding coat.  More important, he is pursuing Lady Emma because he loves her…  he’s just too scared to tell her.  Gerty, Norman’s sister, thinks her brother is crazy, but when he is mistaken as an apparition of St. Meade, Norman is able to enjoy special favor at the abbey.  Emma really opens a Pandora’s box when she suggests that the nuns put on a show in order to raise money for the taxes.”

Will Sir Cuthbert win the day? Will Norman muster his courage? Will the Abbey survive?
