Losing Venice


A joyously original, witty take-down of dangerously daft machismo and the deranged behaviour of countries that have lost an empire and still not yet found a role. An epic fable set in the faraway Spanish Golden Age.

Background


Not seen since it was the surprise smash hit of the 1985 Edinburgh Festival.


Jo Clifford is a transgender writer and performer, best known recently for her controversial work Jesus, Queen of Heaven: now a new generation of performers bring her early work to life again.


Synopsis


Our duty is plain. To bring an end to peace.


An empire gone wrong; an empire completely gone, in fact.


A nation with delusional ideas of its place in the world, making poor choices, involved in clumsy foreign adventures, constantly on the edge of war.


At home, class divides are stark yet all attention is on a Duke's ceremonial marriage.


And surging through the chaos, the absurdities of masculinity threaten to destroy everything.


An epic fable set in the faraway Spanish Golden Age.


Losing Venice is a joyously original, witty take-down of dangerously daft machismo and the deranged behaviour of countries that have lost an empire and still not yet found a role…
