THE REVENGER'S TRAGEDY
I am currently in pre-production for my production of LAZARUS THEATRE COMPANY'S THE REVENGER'S TRAGEDY by THOMAS MIDDLETON
at the Jack Studio Theatre in Brockley
3rd to 21st March 2015, Jack Studio Theatre.
For 15 performances only.
Vindice, in disguise takes a position in the corrupt and decadent Italian court. His masquerade, a device to seek utter revenge for the death of his one true love, leads to one of the bloodiest and most violent Jacobean plays of all time. After all, it is a Revenger’s Tragedy.
Middleton’s dark and violent depiction of court life, lifts the veil on the true danger behind the decadence of the social elite. An all ensemble company brings this ravishing new adaptation to the stage through the use of text, movement and music.
The Revenger’s Tragedy marks Middleton’s Lazarus debut and our return to The Jack Studio Theatre after our triumphant productions of Iphigenia in Aulis in 2012 and The Merchant of Venice in 2013.
"Lazarus’ Richard III is a bold and lusty production which has catapulted the bard’s work into the 21st Century at warpspeed. If you love Shakespeare, be sure not to miss it. And if you’re not a fan of Shakespeare, you will be after seeing this production of Richard III."
