‘Tis Pity She’s a Whore runs from 23 August to 10 September 2016 at London’s Tristan Bates Theatre

Award-winning Lazarus Theatre Company returns to the Tristan Bates Theatre with John Ford‘s notorious play.

Ferocious, murderous and bloody. Love will not conquer all. Love will destroy all.

This Jacobian masterpiece follows two young lovers, Anabella and Giovani, caught in the grip of sexual adventure and discovery. But their love is damned and their sex is a sin; they are Brother and Sister. When the siblings’ love is discovered, their world is changed forever.

This startlingly, provocative play comes to the stage in an all-new, ravishingly decadent, ensemble production. Tis Pity She’s a Whore sees Lazarus Theatre return to the Tristan Bates after their sell-out productions of Tamburlaine in 2015 and Coriolanus / Troilus & Cressida in 2014.

Lazarus is an award-winning theatre company, re-imagining and revitalising classic text for a contemporary audience. I’m delighted that this will be my third post-show event with them: for Tamburlaine, I also hosted a debate on the reworking of Marlowe, Hamlet and other classics; and for Brecht’s The Caucasian Chalk Circle, we discussed political theatre.

For Tis Pity She’s a Whore, we’ll have a panel of experts to discuss: are there any stage taboos left? The Q&A is free to all ticket-holders.
