BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND

A SPECIAL EVENING EVENT

The last in our current Read Not Dead in the Sam Wanamaker series will offer you the chance to choose the play.

Four teams of directors, scholars and actors will present their arguments, and some selected scenes, at a special hustings event on Thursday 29 May. The winning play will then be performed on Sunday 5 October in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse.

Be there to decide who will be back by popular demand and who is consigned to history.

 

Team Marston

The Insatiate Countess

Frances Marshall - Director
Dr Lucy Munro - Scholar 

Comic & tragic in turns, The Insatiate Countess features Jacobean drama's largest female role, its finest title, & its rudest opening line.

 

Team Daborne

A Christian Turn'd Turk

David Oakes -Director
Dr Emma Smith - Scholar 

A Jacobean mashup about International trade, religious conversion and pirates. Arrrr. 

 

Team Middleton

Your Five Gallants

Jason Morell - Director
Dr John Lavagnino - Scholar 

Middleton's London comedy of plague, prostitution, gambling, theft, fraud, and revenge. Can one man uncover the truth?

 

Team Lyly

Sapho and Phao

James Wallace - Director
Dr Andy Kesson - Scholar    

Desire battles duty as a Queen falls in love with a ferryboy in Lyly's astonishing bittersweet dream-play, staged before Elizabeth I in 1584.
