‘Tis Pity Two London Productions of Whore Clash

By • West End
Over the coming weeks, two major productions of Tis Pity She's a Whore, John Ford’s 1633 classic romantic tragedy of innocence and obsession, will be presented simultaneously on opposite sides of the Thames in London.

The drama - about a brother and sister whose violent love for each other brings their world crashing down amidst a corrupt Catholic society - will be at Southwark Playhouse from 3 to 22 October 2005 (previews from 28 September) prior to a UK tour in 2006, and on the north side of the river, at the Jermyn Street Theatre from 28 September to 29 October 2005 (previews from 26 September).

The Southwark Playhouse production launches the new theatre company, Nevertheless. The ensemble comprises Charlie Cox (as Giovanni), Mariah Gale (Annabella), Laurence Fox (Soranzo), Ben’s son Edmund Kingsley (Friar), Andrew Castell (Cardinal), John Hart Dyke (Florio), Dominic Colenso (Vasques), Sarah Paul (Hippolita) and Janet Spencer-Turner (Putana).

It’s directed by Edward Dick who directed Age of Consent at the Edinburgh Festival and at the Bush in 2002, and was also an associate director of Cheek by Jowl’s recent world tour of Othello. The production is designed by Simon Holdsworth, with lighting by Rick Fisher, music by Paddy Cunneen, and sound by Fergus O’Hare.

The Jermyn Street production is presented by the Actors Company as part of its 2005 repertory season, which also includes Peter Luke’s translation of Lorca’s Yerma and Terence Rattigan’s A Bequest to the Nation.
