Synopsis


Intrigue, corruption, lust and the thirst for power collide in Cheek by Jowl's first Italian show - a 'lavish, decadent, perverse world' (Corriere della Sera, Milan).


Seeking retribution for the murder of his fiancée by the Duke, Vindice is drawn into a terrible helter-skelter of punishment that throws his very identity into crisis.


Written by Thomas Middleton (Shakespeare's contemporary) at a time of growing social unease, the play confronts us with a government embroiled in shady affairs and a society obsessed with money, social status and fame.


Created by director Declan Donnellan and designer Nick Ormerod for Milan's renowned Piccolo Teatro, The Revenger's Tragedy is transformed into a macabre dance of death and performed by a charismatic ensemble of Italian actors.
