TRAGEDY OF MARIAM by Elizabeth Cary 


12th - 17th October 2013, The Tristan Bates Theatre.

The king is dead; the Queen must face her people. As the truth about King Herod's passing unravels, Mariam must face those who promise persecution, recrimination and damnation. A woman's pride, strength and voice is central to this ensemble production. 

Written in 1604, The Tragedy of Mariam is the first play to have been written by a woman. This sexual, erotic and powerful piece shall be presented in the award winning Lazarus stule of text, movement and music.
