The Revenger's Tragedy by Thomas Middleton directed by Melly Still.

The cast is led by SE1 resident Rory Kinnear as Vindice and also includes Adjoa Andoh, Tom Andrews, Ken Bones, Donatella Cabras, Billy Carter, Elliot Cowan, Conor Doyle, Barbara Flynn, John Heffernan, Peter Hinton, Derek Howard, Pieter Lawman, Jane Leaney, Tommy Luther, Katherine Manners, Rob McNeill, Pamela Merrick, Simon Nagra, Rick Nodine, Jamie Parker, Richard Shanks, Ross Waiton and Lizzie Winkler.

A ferociously dark play by Thomas Middleton, set in an avaricious world that seethes with vice and retribution.

As he holds the skull of his beloved - who rejected the licentious old Duke's advances and so was poisoned - Vindice plots the Duke's grotesque murder. But in a court where adultery, rape and incest are the norm, his vengeance does not stop there. An orgy of ritualistic, even playful, bloodletting follows.

Suitable for age 15 and above.
