Following their acclaimed Salome at Hoxton Hall in February 2017, and recent applauded production of Daphne du Maurier's Jamaica Inn at Tabard Theatre, Theatre Lab Company return to Hoxton Hall with Molière's Don Juan.
The legendary playboy's notorious exploits have captured the imaginations of playwrights, poets and composers for stage, opera and screen.
Lord Byron, Mozart (Don Giovanni), Patrick Marber (Don Juan in Soho) and Johnny Depp (Don Juan de Marcos) amongst others have been inspired by the tale.
'There is nothing that can halt the impetuosity of my desires: I have a heart to love all the world; and like Alexander, I wish that there were other worlds, so I could march in and make my amorous conquests there as well'. (Don Juan)
Charming … egocentric … atheist … philanderer … recently wed, Don Juan is about to commit adultery against his new wife.
Accompanied by his servant, Sganarelle, he sets out in pursuit of his next amorous conquest.
Sganarelle challenges his master's libertine views as the pair engages in a hilarious philosophical debate to defend their equally self-serving moralities.
Don Juan is remorseless, unrepentant and has a voracious libido.
Sganarelle is clever, pious and ambitious.
Set against the backdrop of the Venice Carnival, Don Juan is a black comedy that follows the last day of the legendary playboy's life.
