Background


Barrie Rutter, recipient of the 2003 Sam Wanamaker Award, directs his first play since stepping down as Artistic Director of Northern Broadsides.


'The invitation to direct a play with so little stage history comes with great dollops of intrigue, relish and excitement.


It is described in the Arden Shakespeare as 'a Jacobean dramatisation of a medieval English tale based on an Italian romance version of a Latin epic about one of the oldest and most tragic Greek legends'!


This production will delight the ear with words and melodies.


We'll have merry May Day capers, and I don't know how many dances there'll be, but methinks the more the merrier.


Come along, join in, and add to the history of a play that includes some of the last words Shakespeare ever wrote for the stage.'


Synopsis


How long is forever?


When the imprisoned Palamon and Arcite vow eternal friendship, they don't expect that anything will come between them.


But then from their cell window they see the beautiful Emilia, and their priorities take a sudden and violent turn.


In this late romance, Fletcher and Shakespeare examine love in all its fluid and complex forms.
