WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Returning to his homeland after being bitterly murdered in war, a haunted spirit seeks revenge on those who brought about his death. His lust and desire for the truth leads to one of the bloodiest plays ever written, The Spanish Tragedy.

This outstanding masterpiece and landmark of Elizabethan drama, through the use of text, movement and music, comes to the stage in this all new ensemble production. Kyd's triumphant thriller inspired many great works of the period including Marlowe's Dr Faustus, Webster's The Duchess of Malfi and Shakespeare's Hamlet.
