A blazing, daring vision – a masterful evening
Le Figaro

Following the success of its 2011/12 performances across Paris, Sydney, New York, London and Madrid, ‘Tis Pity She’s a Whore will return to the UK and internationally next spring.

 

…you will wish each kiss your brother gave / Had been a dagger’s point

 

This vivid and violent Jacobean tragedy shows a brother and sister’s passionate descent into hell. Incest, religion and corrupt morality collide in this ‘sexy, stylish production’ (The Times), making this play as shocking and controversial today as it was almost four hundred years ago.

one of the finest and most bitterly outrageous Jacobean productions you could hope to see… totally compellingWhats on stage

Produced by Cheek by Jowl in a co-production with the Barbican, London, Les Gémeaux/Sceaux/Scène Nationale and Sydney Festival.
