Dictator, lover, husband and murderer, Tamburlaine the Great hits the stage in a gripping, physical and brutal production of an all-new version, adapted and directed by Ricky Dukes for Lazarus Theatre.
Christopher Marlowe’s fierce and ferocious two-part epic follows Tamburlaine and his thirst for power, the crown is within his reach and nothing, not even God, can stand in his way.
An ensemble company, led by Prince Plockey (who received critical acclaim for his Richard III for the company) in the title role, brings both parts one and two to the stage over one evening.
Tamburlaine the Great marks Lazarus’ return to the Tristan Bates Theatre after sell-out productions of Shakespeare’s Troilus & Cressida and Coriolanus in 2014 and the award-winning production of The Tragedy of Mariam in 2013.
This new production runs as part of the annual Camden Fringe Festival, now in its tenth year, in which Lazarus make their sixth appearance.
Tamburlaine the Great starts at 7.30pm and runs for approximately two hours and ten minutes, including an interval. The post-show Q&A – with cast and creatives, chaired by Terri Paddock – on Wednesday 2 September 2015 is free to all ticket holders.
