CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned general re-opening time. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. A few pantomimes may be possible but we await a relaxing of the rules for theatres from the Government.
Tour synopsis, cast & creatives
A Gothic musical about the scandalous relationship between artist Rossetti and his most celebrated muse Jane Burden. The old adage, 'art imitates life' is turned on its head when a commissioned series of stained glass windows seems to presage Dante Gabriel Rossetti's spiral into despair. A tale as rich and decadent as it is unnerving, Possessed follows prominent artists of the Pre-Raphaelite brotherhood and their muses, as inspiration turns into jealousy and scandal barely suppressed in an opium saturated Victorian England. Staged at the atmospheric Frogmore Paper Mill in Apsley, Hertfordshire, this new site-specific British musical explores the devastating power of obsession with an incendiary mix of drugs, desire and dreams.
