About the Show/Event
Information for The Revenger's Tragedy at Barbican Centre, West End (Play). A tale of vengeance, violence and lust n the finest traditions of Jacobean tragedy. As he holds the skull of his beloved - who rejected the licentious old Dukeâs advances and so was poisoned - Vindice plots the Dukeâs grotesque murder. But in a court where adultery, rape and incest are the norm, his vengeance does not stop there. An orgy of ritualistic, even playful, bloodletting follows. Performed in Italian with English surtitles.
Approximate runtime 110minutes (including any interval).
