The cast for the Old Red Lion Theatre's Rep Season of Henry V and The Revenger's Tragedy is as follows: Mark Field, Steve Fortune, Nicholas Kime, Jack Morris, Christine Oram and Henry Regan.

 

 

A world obsessed with wealth and fame.

Riots on the Streets.

A morally bankrupt government

 

Does nothing ever change?

 

A corrupt universe where the desire for justice is confused with the obsession for revenge. A blackly comic and brutally vivid retelling of the classic revenge drama. Join us for an orgy of power struggles, popularity contests and Bunga Bunga parties...

 

The Revenger's Tragedy is a ferociously dark play by Thomas Middleton, set in an avaricious world that seethes with vice and retribution.

 

Set in the 1980's the play examines a broken society, corrupted from the top-down, where sex, money and fame is what drives people to action in a time of economic inequality, famine and industrial disasters.

 

The play is a black comedy and contains scenes of a sexual and violent nature.

Directed by Nicholas Thompson.

 

Part of the Old Red Lion Theatre Rep Season.
