Lazarus Theatre Company present The Revenger’s Tragedy by Thomas Middleton at Brockley Jack from Tuesday 3rd March to Saturday 21st March 2015.
Lazarus Theatre Company announces the first production of Lazarus Season 2015, Thomas Middleton’s dark and decadent, The Revenger’s Tragedy. Vindice, in disguise takes a position in the corrupt 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 their return to The Jack Studio Theatre after their sell-out productions of Iphigenia in Aulis in 2012 and The Merchant of Venice in 2013.
Lazarus Theatre Company is an award winning classic theatre company, passionate about re-imagining and revitalising classic text for a contemporary audience. “This production of The Merchant of Venice is a solid tale of commerce and religious bigotry, played at tremendous pace. It’s fast, slick, thought-provoking, and a strong take on a difficult play.” ***** Entertainment Focus on The Merchant of Venice
Adapted and Directed by Gavin Harrington-Odedra
