SUMMARY

Arden loves Alice, his wife. Mosbie loves Alice, his lover. Alice thinks she loves Mosbie, and so gambles on a spiralling series of plots to murder her husband. But not all bets go well. Within the glitzy and glamorous world of the 1920s, the events of this Renaissance domestic tragedy will unfold. Be prepared to laugh at Black Will and Shakebag’s disastrous assassination attempts. Be prepared to cry at the beautifully tragic verse of the unknown playwright (identified by some as Shakespeare or Marlowe). Arden of Faversham will invite you into a world ruled by coercion, classism and patriarchy – a world of the 1590s, a world of the 1920s, and a world of today. It will be beautiful, and it will be ugly.

Admission: £12(£9)
